Abstract

PURPOSE
We compared the anterior segment measurements using a Scheimpflug camera (Pentacam® [Oculus Inc., Wetzlar, Germany]) and a new anterior segment module of optical coherence tomography (Cirrus HD-OCT 5000® [Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA, USA]).
METHODS
Anterior segment measurements were evaluated in 47 eyes of 26 patients who visited for the purpose of cataract surgery. Measurements of the central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), anterior chamber angle (ACA; nasal and temporal side), and angle to angle distance (ATA) were compared between the Pentacam® and the new anterior segment module of the Cirrus HD-OCT 5000®.
RESULTS
The mean CCTs measured by the Pentacam® and the new anterior segment module of the Cirrus HD-OCT 5000® were 561.68 ± 31.35 µm and 559.04 ± 36.43 µm, respectively. There was no statistically significant difference (p = 0.387) and high correlations in the results using the two methods (r = 0.824, p < 0.001). The mean ACD measurements using the Pentacam® and Cirrus HD-OCT 5000® were 2.70 ± 0.44 mm and 2.68 ± 0.42 mm, respectively. The measurements were strongly correlated (r = 0.981, p < 0.001) without a statistically significant difference (p = 0.091). The measurements of ACA (nasal and temporal side) and ATA did not differ significantly different between the two methods (p = 0.109, p = 0.153, p = 0.322, respectively). High correlations were observed between the two methods (r = 0.944, r = 0.951, r = 0.955, respectively; p < 0.001 in all groups).
CONCLUSIONS
There was no significant difference between the CCT, ACD, ACA, and ATA measured by the Pentacam® and the new anterior segment module of the Cirrus HD-OCT 5000® in adult patients. However, there was a low degree of agreement for the CCT. The measurements of ACD, ACA, and ATA can therefore be considered interchangeable when used clinically.
