In eyes that are hyperopic with small anterior segments, the result is angle crowding and a greater predisposition to pupillary block due to iridolenticular apposition. Table 4. 10 Lowe3 Tomlinson3 Lin17 Marchini32 George32 RLP: Relative lens position adding the anterior chamber depth to half the lens thickness and then dividing the sum by the axial length The RLP was multiplied by 10. LAF : Lens/axial length factor: the lens thickness to axial length ratio multiplied by 10. Lim et al57 did not find significant differences in lens thickness or greater degree of lens opacity in acute primary angle closure (APAC) -affected eyes compared with fellow eyes.
