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.[] Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[] Visual acuity is only decreased in severe cases associated with hypopyon. The signs of anterior uveitis include the following.[]

  • Glaucoma

    During the early Common Era, eye pain, a glaucous hue, pupil irregularities, and absence of light perception indicated a poor prognosis with couching.[] The patient had severe bilateral iris transillumination defects with posterior synechiae formation and 3 pigment with rare cell in the anterior chamber.[] After 2 months, choroidal swelling had completely resolved, best-corrected visual acuity was 20/50, and intraocular pressure was 11 mm Hg.[]

  • 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.[] Corneal sensation with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects may help identify underlying herpetic disease.[] However, thereafter the visual acuity decreases again. Cataract and elevated IOP are common side effects.[]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    […] appearing repeatedly, the appearance of gloom or rainbow wheels when looking at the sources of light, vision problems in the dark, eye pain, often very strong, nausea, abdominal[] 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[] For one of these three eyes, visual acuity decreased to no light perception.[]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    A 41-year-old woman presented with eye pain and an intraocular pressure of 50 mm Hg in the right eye.[] POAG but IOP always measured within normal limits) Primary angle closure glaucoma (narrow drainage angle on gonioscopy) Pigment dispersion glaucoma (Krukenberg spindle, iris[] His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) decreased gradually over 5 years.[]

  • Normal-Tension Glaucoma

    […] sudden symptoms like blurry vision, halos around lights, intense eye pain, nausea and vomiting.[] transillumination defects.[] 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[]

  • 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[] (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[] We found that methotrexate, cyclosporine A, azathioprine, adalimumab, and golimumab might prevent AU flares, improve ocular inflammation and visual acuity, and decrease systemic[]

  • 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?[] Pathological studies and indirect clinical evidence, including iris transillumination defects and iris tucking, have implicated haptic-iris contact.[] The examination showed decreased visual acuity, total hyphema and ocular hypertony. Ocular ultrasonography revealed an intraocular process.[]

  • Albinism

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

  • Diabetic Cataract

    Other signs of digital eye strain include headache, dry eyes, and neck or shoulder pain.[] iris transillumination has been noted.[] In majority of the subjects, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) gradually improved in each subsequent follow-up visit.[]
