Anterior chamber depth and lens thickness have been considered as important biometric determinants in primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). In a tertiary care centre-based case-control study, 70 patients and equal number of controls were investigated to analyse the strength of association and predictability of anterior chamber depth (ACD) and lens thickness (LT) in the disease. Mean (+/- S.D.) ACD and LT in the cases and the controls were found to be 2.28 +/- 0.19, 2.87 +/- 0.10; 4.57 +/- 0.34 and 4.13 +/- 0.19 mm respectively. Two sample t test demonstrated statistically significant difference in the ACD and LT between the cases and the controls (Difference being -0.59, 0.44; 95% confidence interval of the difference: -0.64, -0.53 and 0.34, 0.53 respectively, P < 0.01). Logistic regression analysis demonstrated statistically significant protective effect of ACD over PACG (P < 0.01). The odds ratio corresponding to an increase of 0.01 mm in ACD and LT were computed as 0.83 and 1.11 respectively
