97 Possible Causes for Blepharitis, Transillumination of the Iris

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    […] and also code a 99000 E/M code with the -25 modifier with the diagnosis of blepharitis.[] Examine closely for iris tears and transillumination defects, lens opacities, AC shallowing, and asymmetrically low IOP in the involved eye.[] For example, if you identify a blepharitis and a corneal foreign body, then you would code for the corneal foreign body removal with the diagnosis of corneal foreign body[]

  • 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[] .  Gonioscopy – pigment accumulation along the Schwalbe’s line especially inferiorly (Sampaolesi’s line)  Iris transillumination – radial slit – like transillumination defects[] By 1979, researchers believed that the disease was caused by packets of lens zonules rubbing against the peripheral iris, thus freeing pigment.[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Keratitis

    Concurrent blepharitis also needs addressing. In very severe cases where there is the threat of corneal perforation, systemic immunosuppression is used.[] The pupil size may be normal, but there may be loss of the iris surface architecture or the presence of iris transillumination. [1] [3] [16] Other iris changes include partial[] […] periphery of the cornea Marginal keratitis [ 13 ] This is caused by hypersensitivity to staphylococcal toxins, more common in patients with chronic staphylococcal keratitis or blepharitis[]

  • Keratoglobus

    , posterior embryotoxon, transillumination defects, Krukenberg spindles, trabecular meshwork pigmentation, posterior embryotoxon, Rieger anomaly, goniodysgenesis and cataracts[] Associated ocular conditions included orbital pseudotumor, vernal keratoconjunctivitis in three patients, chronic marginal blepharitis with chronic eye rubbing, and glaucoma[] It is associated with: Chronic marginal blepharitis. Dysthyroid ophthalmopathy. Vernal keratoconjunctivitis. Symptoms Patients are generally asymptomatic.[]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    Furthermore, prominent concentric, circular iris transillumination (grade 3) was only observed in XFS.[] Optometrists offering complete eye health care from vision disorders, age-related eye discomforts, and eye diseases including Amblyopia, Macular Degeneration, Astigmatism, Blepharitis[] I have not seen an association of more blepharitis and XFG and I do not know that an association has been described in the medical literature.[]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    There was no associated iris atrophy, no anterior chamber activity, intraocular pressure was 26 mmHg, and fundal examination of the left eye showed a cupped disc (CD 0.9)[] Ocular involvement occurs in 20-70% of patients with herpes zoster ophthalmicus and may include blepharitis, keratoconjunctivitis, iritis, scleritis, and acute retinal necrosis[] The majority of patients will have vesicular lesions on the eyelids that resolve with minimal scarring Patients may develop blepharitis.[]

  • Vitreous Hemorrhage

    Iris transillumination defects and apposition of the optic and iris were found. The patient was diagnosed with Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema (UGH) Syndrome.[] Rather than being confined to anterior segment abnormalities like conjunctivitis, blepharitis and nasolacrimal duct obstruction which are reported in the literature, dyskeratosis[] Iris transillumination defects and apposition of the nasal haptic and ciliary body were found. Iris chafing is a rare complication of cataract extraction.[]

  • Glassblower's Cataract

    ., Kruckenberg’s spindle), peripheral transillumination of the iris, and increased pigment in the trabcular meshwork may indicate pigmentary dispersion glaucoma.[] […] eyes are exposed to heat regularly have higher chances developing cataract (glass blowers/furnace workers), so what will happen to the ones who us hot compress to contain blepharitis[] The material appears as white flecks on the pupillary margin of the iris, and it is accompanied by a loss of the pupillary ruff and by peripupillary iris transillumination[]

  • Uveitis

    They include: conjunctivitis, blepharitis, episcleritis, scleritis, keratitis, anterior uveitis, retinitis, and vitritis.[] Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[] (BADI) and bilateral acute transillumination of the iris (BAIT), the finding of corneal endothelial pigment precipitates is a useful clue to the differential diagnosis.18,19[]

  • Retinal Degeneration-Nanophthalmos-Glaucoma Syndrome

    Chronic Eye Diseases Color Blindness Convergence Insufficiency Cornea Guttata With Anterior Polar Cataract Corneal Dystrophy Corneal Flash Burns Corneal Scar Diabetes-Like Blepharitis[] On exam, the ophthalmologist makes the diagnosis of pigmentary glaucoma by first noting transillumination defects (windows) in the iris indicative of pigment loss.[] Cataract - Cardiomyopathy Cataract - Congenital Ichthyosis Cataract - Glaucoma Cataract - Microcornea Syndrome Cataract Congenital Dominant Non Nuclear Diabetes Diabetes-Like Blepharitis[]
