- Background: To investigate the outcomes of corneal and anterior chamber angle (ACA) parameters after laser iridotomy (LI) combined with peripheral iridoplasty (PI) using dual Scheimpflug analyzer in the long term. Methods: Fifty-eight eyes (58 subjects) with shallow AC were included in this prospective cohort study. Images of the Dual Scheimpflug analyzer were obtained before, 1 week, and 1 year after LI and PI. Pachymetry from three zones (central, middle, and peripheral), corneal aberration, and spherical equivalent (SE) were acquired. AC depth (ACD), AC volume (ACV), ACA from four quadrants, and intraocular pressure (IOP) were also obtained. For comparison of the results, the linear mixed-effects model was employed. Results: ACD significantly increased from 2.09 +/- 0.25 mm to 2.10 +/- 0.23 mm at 1 year after laser (all p < 0.05). ACV and ACA increased significantly after laser at 1 year (all p < 0.05). IOP significantly decreased from 15.97 +/- 4.20 mmHg to 13.73 +/- 2.63 mmHg at 1 year (all p < 0.0001). No significant changes were found in the coma, trefoil, total corneal aberration, pachymetry from three zones, corneal volume, central corneal thickness, and SE after LI and PI until 1 year (all p > 0.05). Conclusions: LI plus PI ameliorated parameters of ACA efficiently and significantly reduced IOP in eyes with shallow AC until 1 year of long-term follow-up. However, parameters of the cornea and SE were not influenced by LI with PI until after 1 year.
