226 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate, Loss of Vision, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Endophthalmitis

    Abstract Postoperative infectious endophthalmitis is rare, yet devastating loss of vision or loss of the eye can occur due to a highly purulent microorganism or uncontrolled[] The visual acuity decreased to hand motions or light perception postoperatively.[] Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[]

  • Keratitis

    Adenoviral conjunctivitis may lead to subepithelial corneal infiltrates as a late complication.[] 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.[] On initial presentation, the visual acuity in both of his eyes was hand motion, and slit lamp examination showed diffuse infiltrates and total epithelial defects of the cornea[]

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Signs of infectious infiltrate in the cornea. IOP usually normal. Gonioscopy shows an open angle. The anterior chamber depth is usually normal.[] 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.[] A 69-year-old male developed a painful red eye with decreased visual acuity a few days after ptosis correction.[]

  • Toxic Amblyopia

    S igns and Symptoms There is a loss of vision that can not be corrected with glasses beyond a certain degree.[] The disorder involves lost vision, including scotomas (blind spots) and decreased visual acuity within the central portion of the visual field.[] Findings: (1) Color photography: confluent nummuli. (2) Slit lamp: infiltrates in corneal epithelium and subepithelium.[]

  • Corneal Disease

    NON-INFECTIOUS CORNEAL INFILTRATES Non-infectious corneal infiltrates, corneal subepithelial infiltrates and infiltrative keratitis, result from a delayed hypersensitivity[] When the cornea is damaged by injury or disease it can lead to loss of vision or sometimes even blindness.[] Affected individuals may experience mild irritation and a slight decrease in clarity of vision (visual acuity).[]

  • Iritis

    Sir, We describe a patient with signs of partial third nerve palsy, severe iritis, and loss of vision due to essential thrombocytosis.[] However, a red eye in conjunction with symptoms such as photophobia, pain, and decreased visual acuity is an important clue to a much more serious disorder.[] Look for the presence of corneal infiltrates and/or epithelial defects.[]

  • Angle Closure Glaucoma

    […] of vision in this rare event.[] Pain is the main symptom and may be accompanied by decrease in visual acuity. Early diagnosis and treatment is important to avoid permanent visual loss.[] Signs of infectious infiltrate in the cornea. IOP usually normal. Gonioscopy shows an open angle. The anterior chamber depth is usually normal.[]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    Initial observation for growth and judiciously timed surgical intervention prevented progression, loss of vision, and potentially the loss of the eye.[] For one of these three eyes, visual acuity decreased to no light perception.[] It was somewhat surprising that there was infiltration of CD68-positive cells, macrophages and lymphocytes around the Schlemm’s canal (Figures 1c, 2 and 4c) and collector[]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    The visual outcome was good, with 14/24 patients having 6/6 vision; severe vision loss ( 6/60) occurred in only 2/24.[] During the hospitalization, her visual acuity decreased. Fluorescein angiography (FAG) and optical coherence tomography revealed optic neuritis in the affected eye.[] These epithelial lesions can lead to anterior stromal corneal infiltrates.[]

  • Corneal Abrasion

    A corneal opacity or infiltrate may occur with corneal ulcers or infection ( Figure 3 ) .[] If not properly treated, a corneal abrasion may become infected which can result in a loss of vision.[] Visual acuity may decrease slightly, greatly, or fluctuate.[]
