Answer

These imaging techniques can be used to visualize the angle and surrounding structures. They can provide objective and quantitative measurements to document changes to the angle before and after treatment. However, clinical assessment and the use of gonioscopy may be more practical and applicable if a patient has acute angle closure (AAC). [14]
