157 Possible Causes for Eye Pain, Transillumination of the Iris, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Uveitis

    A 56-year-old man was referred by his family doctor with a 2-week history of right eye pain and decreased vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Glaucoma

    During the early Common Era, eye pain, a glaucous hue, pupil irregularities, and absence of light perception indicated a poor prognosis with couching.[doi.org] 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]

  • Posterior Uveitis

    Uveitis is inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, called the uvea or uveal tract. It can cause eye pain and changes to your vision.[nhs.uk] 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]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    This report describes 2 patients who experienced eye pain, photophobia, redness, and edema after undergoing alexandrite (755 nm) laser epilation of the eyebrow area while[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (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[touchophthalmology.com] We found that methotrexate, cyclosporine A, azathioprine, adalimumab, and golimumab might prevent AU flares, improve ocular inflammation and visual acuity, and decrease systemic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyphema

    Symptoms may vary, depending on the cause of the bleeding, but may include blurred vision, severe eye pain, and extreme sensitivity to light. Why Does Hyphema Occur?[eyehealthweb.com] Pathological studies and indirect clinical evidence, including iris transillumination defects and iris tucking, have implicated haptic-iris contact.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The examination showed decreased visual acuity, total hyphema and ocular hypertony. Ocular ultrasonography revealed an intraocular process.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Albinism

    Nystagmus is not painful and does not get worse, but there is currently no cure.[hse.ie] An African girl with OCA-2 showing iris transillumination, yellowish tinted hair and many solar lentigines.[clinicaladvisor.com] A 39-year-old man with foveal hypoplasia, nystagmus, and decreased visual acuity was found to have multiple, cutaneous, hypopigmented macules.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Cataract

    Other signs of digital eye strain include headache, dry eyes, and neck or shoulder pain.[healthline.com] 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]
