85 Possible Causes for Ciliary Injection, Corneal Infiltrate, Loss of Vision

  • Keratitis

    The patient presented with progressive loss of vision with best-corrected visual acuity 20/40. Immature cataract with 1.43D against the rule astigmatism was noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Adenoviral conjunctivitis may lead to subepithelial corneal infiltrates as a late complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: Despite following standard treatment, Pseudomonas keratitis can continue to progress and result in loss of vision or of the eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypopyon Ulcer

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    […] with superficial and deep vessels dilated (ciliary injection).[atlasophthalmology.net] An elderly man had acute angle-closure glaucoma soon after undergoing bilateral lower eyelid blepharoplasty that resulted in complete loss of vision in one eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs of infectious infiltrate in the cornea. IOP usually normal. Gonioscopy shows an open angle. The anterior chamber depth is usually normal.[aao.org]

  • Iritis

    The acute form is usually characterized by pain, photophobia, ciliary injection, exudates in the anterior chamber (aqueous flare), keratic precipitates, oedema, constricted[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Look for the presence of corneal infiltrates and/or epithelial defects.[reviewofoptometry.com] Sir, We describe a patient with signs of partial third nerve palsy, severe iritis, and loss of vision due to essential thrombocytosis.[nature.com]

  • Recurrent Corneal Erosion

    Ciliary spasm causing miosis, pain, and ciliary flush (injection of ciliary vessels surrounding the cornea) may indicate traumatic iritis.[aafp.org] No loss of vision was observed in any of the patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS Corneal infiltrates are an uncommon complication of recurrent corneal epithelial erosion.[bjo.bmj.com]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    All investigated AAU patients showed severe ciliary injection, numerous dust keratic precipitates (KPs), aqueous flare and inflammatory cells, and were treated predominantly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Persistent or untreated anterior uveitis can lead to scarring, glaucoma, and/or a permanent loss of vision, thus prompt evaluation and treatment at the first sign of symptoms[eyespecialistsforanimals.com] Slit lamp examination revealed multiple disc-shaped corneal stromal infiltrates with an overlying epithelial defect and hypopyon in both the eyes.[readbyqxmd.com]

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    There was marked mixed conjunctival and ciliary injection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She presented with a burning sensation and extreme pain, along with loss of vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Corneal Abrasion

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    The ophthalmic exam evidences severe ciliary and conjunctival injection, dendritic keratitis, corneal endothelial plaques and positive Hutchinson's sign.[medigraphic.com] These epithelial lesions can lead to anterior stromal corneal infiltrates.[cehjournal.org] The visual outcome was good, with 14/24 patients having 6/6 vision; severe vision loss ( 6/60) occurred in only 2/24.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Herpes Simplex Dendritic Keratitis

    In addition, there may be mild conjunctival injection, ciliary flush, mild stromal edema and subpeithelial white blood cell infiltration.[eyewiki.aao.org] The response may result in the destruction of the corneal stroma, [3] resulting in loss of vision due to opacification of the cornea.[en.wikipedia.org] infiltrate, Immune Ring of Wessely Parenchymatous Keratitis Pseudomonas aeruginosa Keratitis with Corneal Perforation after Daily Wear Lens (Colour Image) Viral Keratitis[atlasophthalmology.net]
