The Visante OCT is quite useful sometimes for quantifying angle depth. Following iridotomy, the angle chamber depth may increase. For those cases where the angle depth shows little change at all, potentially, more frequent follow up might be advised to judge the need for preventive cataract surgery. Sometimes the lens of the eye thickens enough to cause angle closure and iridotomy is not always enough to prevent ongoing chronic angle closure.
