340 Possible Causes for Melanin Dispersion in Iris, Transillumination of the Iris, Unilateral Epiphora

  • 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] Distortion of the cornea, anterior chamber, iris, pupil or lens indicates ocular penetration. Handy tips: Remember to evert the eyelids in the quest for foreign bodies.[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    The melanin dispersion is from atrophy of the iris pigment epithelium. Actual pseudoexfoliative material may be noted on the TM.[eyewiki.aao.org] Furthermore, prominent concentric, circular iris transillumination (grade 3) was only observed in XFS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other clinical signs associated with exfoliation syndrome are pigment dispersion, transillumination defects of the iris and reduced response to mydriatics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

    Peripapillary atrophy and iris sphincter region transillumination Melanin dispersion associated with pupillary dilation Poor mydriasis, asymmetric pupil sizes Melanin dispersion[optometricmanagement.com] Loss of iris pigment and its deposition throughout the anterior segment are refl ected in iris sphincter region transillumination defects, loss of the pupillary ruff, pigment[tmj.ro] Atrophy of the pigment epithelium may be associated with anterior chamber melanin dispersion, which may be seen as a whorl-like pattern of pigment particles on the iris sphincter[slideshare.net]

  • Blocked Tear Duct

    A blocked tear duct is when the eye’s drainage system for tears is either partially or completely obstructed. Tears cannot drain normally, causing a watery, irritated or chronically infected eye. Most of your tears come from your lacrimal glands, which are located above each eye. The tears flow down the surface[…][aao.org]

  • Recurrent Corneal Erosion

    Recurrent corneal erosion is a disorder of the eyes characterized by the failure of the cornea's outermost layer of epithelial cells to attach to the underlying basement membrane (Bowman's layer). The condition is excruciatingly painful because the loss of these cells results in the exposure of sensitive corneal[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Corneal Ulcer

    We describe a case of unilateral upper eyelid horizontal tarsal kink with congenital corneal ulceration. The surgical repair, by means of a simple resection of orbicularis and skin, is presented as a simple technique to correct the congenital anomaly of tarsal kink. Congenital tarsal kink should be included in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    AIM: To compare the success rate of balloon catheter dilatation of the nasolacrimal duct with probing and irrigation as primary treatment for congenital dacryostenosis. METHODS: Charts of all children who were operated on for the first time for congenital dacryostenosis during the years 2004 to 2006 were[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
