Imaging Studies

Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is useful in evaluating the iris configuration and the posterior chamber structures in patients with pigment dispersion syndrome (PDS) and pigmentary glaucoma (PG). [14] UBM may demonstrate a posterior iris insertion, [15] iris concavity, iridozonular contact, and extensive iridolenticular contact.

Anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used to assess the parameters of the anterior chamber and angle dimensions in patients with pigmentary glaucoma. [16, 17]
