73 Possible Causes for Glaucoma, Iridodonesis, No Cataracts

  • Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

    In contrast, there were less elastotic fibers in the lamina cribrosa from patients with primary open-angle glaucoma compared with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] during, and even after, cataract surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) can be useful in cases of iridodonesis and subluxation of the lens. Gonioscopy is an essential examination needed for PEX diagnosis.[symptoma.com]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Those affected suffer from one or more of the following problems: eyes – dislocation of lenses, short-sightedness, retinal detachment, glaucoma skeleton – excessive height[web.archive.org] Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery is an effective approach for cataract surgery in patients with Marfan syndrome with mild, moderate, and even severe lens subluxation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ocular system Findings include ectopia lentis (subluxation or upward dislocation of the lens) and iridodonesis (tremulousness of the iris).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Ectopia Lentis

    Phacolytic glaucoma was found in one eye followed shortly by an attack of phacolytic glaucoma in the opposite eye. although phacolytic glaucoma is an absolute indication for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] J Cataract Refract Surg. 2007 May. 33(5):819-24. [Medline]. Ectopia lentis. Dislocated traumatic lens (cataract). Ectopia lentis.[emedicine.com] Trembling of the iris (iridodonesis) Trembling of the lens (phacodonesis) Aphakic crescent Mild conjunctival redness Vitreous humour degeneration Prolapse of the vitreous[premilife.com]

  • Lens Dislocation

    They all displayed the sequence of myopia, angle shallowing, followed by angle-closure glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A negative correlation was found between the patient age at cataract surgery and the time between cataract surgery and IOL dislocation (r -0.29; P 0.042).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Iridodonesis is usually present.[ikeyes.blogspot.com]

  • Keratoglobus

    About 50% patients had post-PK glaucoma though grafts were clear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sahu, MS Meeting 2015 Annual Meeting Date April 21, 2015 Cataract surgery in keratoglobus is unpredictable.[ascrs.org] Associated findings include anterior megalophthalmos, enlarged ciliary ring with zonular stretching (leading to phacodonesis), ectopia lentis, iridodonesis, iris stromal hypoplasia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Phthisis Bulbi

    When it comes to glaucoma, the pump could also drain intraocular fluid as it builds up and creates pressure.[newatlas.com] […] after cataract surgery were reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] rotated and the pigment faces forwards. 7) Retro flexion of the iris: the iris is driven backwards and is incarcerated between the lens equator and the ciliary body. 8) Iridodonesis[slideshare.net]

  • Eyeball Injury

    Traumatic glaucoma is any glaucoma caused by an injury to the eye. This type of glaucoma can occur both immediately after an injury to the eye or years later.[glaucoma.org] If the injury causes formation of a cataract, the cataract may be need to be removed later and replaced with a lens implant.[eyeporter.com] Lens Injury (Cataract) Cataract (cloudy lens) or Lens Dislocation can occur immediately after or sometimes in a delayed fashion after blunt or penetrating injury to the eye[sanantonioeyeinstitute.com]

  • Traumatic Cataract

    We report a case of a 30-year-old woman with aniridia who developed a traumatic cataract related to placement of an Ex-PRESS mini glaucoma shunt.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Traumatic cataracts can be unilateral or bilateral.[symptoma.com] The anterior segment of the right eye was stable with transparent optical media, proper centration of the intraocular lens, and slight iridodonesis.[journals.lww.com]

  • Aphakia

    Early diagnosis of glaucoma, however, can be quite challenging in these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Anterior capsule fibrosis was noted in 5 eyes with advanced cataract (1 with total cataract, 4 with partially resorbed lens).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Another distinctive sign is iridodonesis, which describes the jittering of the iris because of absent support from the lens.[symptoma.com]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    (EG; n 83) as well as in 251 control patients aged 70 years or older with primary open-angle glaucoma (PG; n 40), normal tension glaucoma (NG; n 54), and cataract (CT; n[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: The percentage of XFS among patients scheduled for cataract surgery was 16.4, with no gender difference (p 0.833).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Phacodonesis and iridodonesis are not uncommon; they are related to zonular weakness, which may predispose affected eyes to zonular dehiscence; vitreous loss; and other complications[aao.org]
