We have used anterior segment swept source optical coherence tomography to measure Schlemm's canal (SC) morphometric values in the living human eye. Fifty healthy volunteers with 100 normal eyes were measured in the nasal and temporal side. Comparison with the published SC morphometric values of histologic sections proves the reliability of our results. The statistical results show that there are no significant differences between nasal and temporal SC with respect to their diameter, perimeter, and area in our study (diameter: t = 0.122, p = 0.903; perimeter: t = -0.003, p = 0.998; area: t = -1.169, p = 0.244); further, no significant differences in SC morphometric values are found between oculus sinister and oculus dexter (diameter: t = 0.943, p = 0.35; perimeter: t = 1.346, p = 0.18; area: t = 1.501, p = 0.135).
