- Purpose To investigate the changes in corneal topography including parameters such as corneal curvature and corneal aberrations, along with anterior chamber angle (ACA) after laser iridotomy (LI) combined with peripheral iridoplasty (PI) using dual Scheimpflug analyzer. Methods In this prospective observational study, dual Scheimpflug analyzer images were acquired before and 1 week after LI plus PI. Corneal curvature of both axial and instantaneous maps from anterior and posterior surface, respectively, and total corneal power (TCP) were acquired. These corneal parameters from three zones (central, middle, and peripheral) and total corneal wavefront aberration, trefoil, and coma were obtained. The ACA from four quadrants, anterior chamber depth (ACD), anterior chamber volume (ACV), and intraocular pressure (IOP) were also inspected. Results ACD increased significantly from 2.15 +/- 0.25 to 2.18 +/- 0.24 mm (P = 0.002). ACV and ACA from all four quadrants increased significantly after the laser treatment (all P < 0.05). IOP decreased significantly from 16.9 +/- 3.1 to 14.7 +/- 2.9 mmHg following LI plus PI (P = 0.000). No significant changes were detected in corneal axial and instantaneous curvature from three zones on the anterior and posterior corneal surface after LI plus PI (all P > 0.05). The TCP, total corneal wavefront aberration, trefoil, and coma also revealed no significant changes after the laser procedure (all P > 0.05). Conclusions Treatment with LI combined with PI did not affect the corneal topographic parameters from both anterior and posterior surfaces. However, LI plus PI improved ACA parameters significantly and effectively.
