Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the changes in anterior chamber morphology and corneal endothelium in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEXG) and to determine the differences according to the control group.
Material and Methods: 61 eyes of 61 PEX patients, 56 eyes of 56 PEXG patients and 46 eyes of 46 healthy subjects were included in the study. Measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP) was taken and axial length (AL), K1, K2, central corneal thickness (CCT), white-to-white distance (WTW), anterior chamber depth (ACD), pupil diameter (PD) by optical biometry and endothelial cell density (ECD), polimegatism (CV), pleomorphism (HEX) and average cell area (AVG) by specular microscope were taken of all the patients. Evaluation among the groups were made by ANOVA test, and p 0.05). There were no statistically significant differences among the groups in terms of IOP, AL, K1, K2, WTW, ACD (p> 0.05). Pupil diameter values were lower in the PEX group. CCT and endothelial cell counts were found to be higher in the control group compared to the other groups, while no significant difference was found between PEX and PEXG groups. AVG results were found to be significantly higher in the PEXG group than in the control group (p
