    To use anterior segment optical coherence tomography to detect early alterations in anterior chamber morphology following phacoemulsification and IOL implantation. Material and Methods: A prospective, follow-up interventional investigation was conducted to measure the changes in anterior chamber configuration in twenty (20) eyes followin8g a month of posterior chamber IOL implantation and phacoemulsification. Result: A p-value of (0.027_0.009_0.02_0.012) indicates a significant change in the nasal, superior, temporal, and inferior angles assessed by anterior segment optical coherence tomography before and after the phacoemulsification procedure. Conclusion: After a smooth phacoemulsification and IOL implantation, quantitative values indicated an increase in the anterior chamber angle (ACA), as determined by AS-OCT.
