298 Possible Causes for Corneal Edema, Iritis

  • Corneal Abrasion

    These include: Congenital diseases like keratoconus Scars from infection or trauma Degenerative corneal diseases Corneal dystrophies Corneal Edema All of the above cause the[kremereyecenter.com] uveitis (anterior ciliary injection, cells, flare) Differential diagnosis Infectious keratitis (all forms) Recurrent corneal erosion Spontaneous epithelial breakdown in EBM[college-optometrists.org] Rigid contact lenses can lead to relative corneal hypoxia, epithelial edema, and epithelial breakdown.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    The corneal edema and uveitis subsided following surgical extraction of the lens fragment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Anterior uveitis is the more common of the two.[mastereyeassociates.com] There was no significant difference in central corneal thickness between eyes with and without uveitis (P 0.27). No eyes had clinically apparent central corneal edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Entry sites in the cornea may be seen as a disruption in the smooth surface with corneal edema surrounding the entry site.[eyewiki.aao.org] Steroids, even in the presence of iritis or ensuing iritis, are relatively contraindicated until re-epithialization has been noted.[reviewofoptometry.com] Iritis Painful eye, photophobia, constricted or irregular pupil, headache, nausea. Refer to Eye Hospital. See acute red eye . Pterygium Reassure.[emed.ie]

  • Corneal Ulcer

  • Glaucoma

    Following intravenous mannitol, the corneal edema resolved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe iritis occurred in two eyes and hyphema occurred in three eyes. No instances of hypotony or phthisis bulbi were reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] protein Lens-induced glaucoma Uveitis By drugs Corticosteroid-induced glaucoma Due to other means Viscoelastic agents Vitreous hemorrhage Alterations Due to edema Alkali burns Iritis[merckmanuals.com]

  • Allergic Conjunctivitis

    Just as in AKC, patients, if untreated, can develop conjunctival scarring or corneal neovascularization, scarring, or erosions/ulcers.[eyewiki.aao.org] […] vision Absence of focal pathology (eg stye or blepharitis ) The following "red flags" point to other more serious diagnoses, such as keratitis ( inflammation of the cornea ), iritis[dermnetnz.org] They include inflammatory conditions affecting the inside of the eye, shingles, iritis and ulceration of the eye (although all these conditions tend to cause blurring or reduction[patient.info]

  • Iritis

    Ciliary flush, a violaceous ring around the cornea, is highly indicative of intraocular inflammation. [ 1 ] Corneal edema and vitreous haze (large collection of inflammatory[emedicine.medscape.com] About 34% of the patients with anterior uveitis, including iritis, has idiopathic etiology.[symptoma.com] Even with prompt clinical care serious complications such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal edema and corneal band keratopathy may occur.[newjerseyvision.com]

  • Bee Sting

    Corneal epithelial defect, corneal edema, secondary bacterial keratitis, heterochromia iridis, and internal ophthalmoplegia were identified The corneal edema markedly improved[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of corneal bee sting with retained stinger apparatus and associated iritis and discuss the pathologic mechanisms of injury, evaluation, and treatment of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Postsurgery, visual acuity improved, and the corneal edema regressed over a 1-month follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Interstitial Keratitis

    Pathologic examination of the corneal button disclosed corneal edema, posterior stromal vascularization, much thickening of Descemet's membrane, and concentrically laminated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Anterior uveitis Anterior uveitis is unilateral in 56% of cases. It is granulomatous, with mutton-fat keratic precipitates on the corneal endothelium, in 50% of cases.[emedicine.medscape.com] Five eyes of five patients with congenital syphilitic interstitial keratitis who underwent keratoplasty for corneal opacities and corneal edema were studied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
