  • Uveitis

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Examine closely for iris tears and transillumination defects, lens opacities, AC shallowing, and asymmetrically low IOP in the involved eye.[lifeinthefastlane.com] If you have a foreign body in your eye, prompt diagnosis and treatment will help prevent infection and potential loss of vision.[hamiltoneyeclinic.co.nz] […] eye is broken, including broken bones Severe pain Chemical exposure to the eye Sensitivity to light without cause Glaucoma Recent history of corneal ulceration or herpetic keratitis[walgreens.com]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    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[reviewofoptometry.com] Initial observation for growth and judiciously timed surgical intervention prevented progression, loss of vision, and potentially the loss of the eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To describe the association of acanthamoeba keratitis and glaucoma, to establish an incidence of glaucoma in patients with acanthamoeba keratitis, to discuss treatment options[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Corneal Blood Staining

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    There was no associated iris atrophy, no anterior chamber activity, intraocular pressure was 26 mmHg, and fundal examination of the left eye showed a cupped disc (CD 0.9)[nature.com] The visual outcome was good, with 14/24 patients having 6/6 vision; severe vision loss ( 6/60) occurred in only 2/24.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute keratitis is one of the most common of these ocular complications associated with HZO.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Granulomatous Iritis

    (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] This may result in an increased risk of substantial visual impairment.[emedicine.medscape.com] Cornea Keratic precipitates (KPs) are found on the endothelium. KPs are clusters of white blood cells.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Scleromalacia
