179 Possible Causes for Cataract, Transillumination of the Iris, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Uveitis

    Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[touchophthalmology.com] Visual acuity is only decreased in severe cases associated with hypopyon. The signs of anterior uveitis include the following.[symptoma.com] KEYWORDS: Cataracta complicata; cataract complications; cataract extraction; phacoemulsificationuveitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Cataract

    iris transillumination has been noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In majority of the subjects, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) gradually improved in each subsequent follow-up visit.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Various visual disturbances may be noted in diabetic cataract, and the diagnosis requires a slit-lamp examination.[symptoma.com]

  • Glaucoma

    The patient had severe bilateral iris transillumination defects with posterior synechiae formation and 3 pigment with rare cell in the anterior chamber.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 2 months, choroidal swelling had completely resolved, best-corrected visual acuity was 20/50, and intraocular pressure was 11 mm Hg.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and cataract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    POAG but IOP always measured within normal limits) Primary angle closure glaucoma (narrow drainage angle on gonioscopy) Pigment dispersion glaucoma (Krukenberg spindle, iris[eyewiki.aao.org] His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) decreased gradually over 5 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cataract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] For one of these three eyes, visual acuity decreased to no light perception.[healio.com] AIM: To determine the prevalence and risk factors associated with secondary glaucoma postcongenital cataract surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Polar Cataract

    […] may sweep material into rings on the lens capsule Best viewed with dilation Transillumination defect and fibrillar material at the papillary margin Open angle with brown[medrounds.org] This is especially true if an unexplained decrease in visual acuity occurs without a concurrent change in the posterior polar cataract.[emedicine.medscape.com] To report an unusual manifestation of anterior polar cataract. Observational case report.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Choroid Hemangioma

    Granuloma — -Tubercle — Sarcoma — Ophthalmia Nodosa 399 New Growths of the Ciliary Body — Sarcoma — Myosarcoma — Car- cinoma ..... 401 New Growths of the Chorioid — Sclerotic Transilluminator[archive.org] […] in visual acuity.[omicsonline.org] Biomicroscopy revealed bilateral cataracts. Diagnosis of CCH was made fundoscopically for OS and confirmed with optical coherence tomography (OCT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Posterior Uveitis

    Corneal sensation with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects may help identify underlying herpetic disease.[retinalphysician.com] However, thereafter the visual acuity decreases again. Cataract and elevated IOP are common side effects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The single phakic eye developed a visually significant cataract 18 months postoperatively requiring cataract extraction. There were no cases of postoperative infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ectopia Lentis

    Those patients with simple lens ectopia as well as those with ectopic lenses and pupils had striking transillumination of the iris periphery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 2 years, she presented with intermittent ocular pain and decreased visual acuity of the left eye.[synapse.koreamed.org] J Cataract Refract Surg. 2007 May. 33(5):819-24. [Medline]. Ectopia lentis. Dislocated traumatic lens (cataract). Ectopia lentis.[emedicine.com]

  • Normal-Tension Glaucoma

    transillumination defects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A detailed workup including neuroimaging may be indicated in patients with decreased central visual acuity ( 20/40), patients under 50 years of age, individuals with visual[glaucomatoday.com] Surgery was performed on half the treated patients who continued to progress, cataracts developed more quickly in them, and their visual outcomes were not as successful, he[healio.com]
