Study of pachymetry and iridocorneal angle in patients with chronic glaucoma: About 111 cases at the niamey national hospital in niger.

Introduction: The aim of our study was to evaluate the central corneal thickness and the iridocorneal angle in glaucoma patients at the Niamey National Hospital. Methodology: This was a prospective descriptive study carried out over 20 months from March 2021 to October 2022 in the ophthalmology department of theNiamey National Hospital.

Results: The hospital prevalence was 1.95%, the average age was 52.48 ± 16.23 years (16-84years). M/F sex ratio 1.38. Age over 40 years was the main risk factor (56.08%). The average ECC was 515.25 ± 40.38 μm. The AIC was completely open in 98.20% of cases.Goniosynechia represented 6.75% of anomalies. The types of glaucoma encountered were as follows: POAG 90%, GSAO 8%, and GCFA 2%.

Conclusion: Despite the predominance of POAG, particular attention must be paid to other types of glaucoma. The corneal thinness found in this study calls for early detection strategies for glaucomatous disease.
