1,206 Possible Causes for Blepharitis, Melanin Dispersion in Iris, Transillumination of the Iris

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    The melanin dispersion is from atrophy of the iris pigment epithelium. Actual pseudoexfoliative material may be noted on the TM.[eyewiki.aao.org] Furthermore, prominent concentric, circular iris transillumination (grade 3) was only observed in XFS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Optometrists offering complete eye health care from vision disorders, age-related eye discomforts, and eye diseases including Amblyopia, Macular Degeneration, Astigmatism, Blepharitis[orangevilleoptometrists.ca]

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Examine closely for iris tears and transillumination defects, lens opacities, AC shallowing, and asymmetrically low IOP in the involved eye.[lifeinthefastlane.com] […] and also code a 99000 E/M code with the -25 modifier with the diagnosis of blepharitis.[reviewob.com] Distortion of the cornea, anterior chamber, iris, pupil or lens indicates ocular penetration.

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    This was evidenced by characteristic transillumination defects in the iris. 3 In 1992, researchers suggested that posterior bowing of the peripheral iris was caused by reverse[reviewofoptometry.com] .  Gonioscopy – pigment accumulation along the Schwalbe’s line especially inferiorly (Sampaolesi’s line)  Iris transillumination – radial slit – like transillumination defects[slideshare.net] By 1979, researchers believed that the disease was caused by packets of lens zonules rubbing against the peripheral iris, thus freeing pigment.[reviewofoptometry.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Keratitis

    The pupil size may be normal, but there may be loss of the iris surface architecture or the presence of iris transillumination.
