813 Possible Causes for Photophobia, Secondary Glaucoma

  • Glaucoma

    A 55-year-old female was referred for a second opinion regarding her bilateral ocular pain, photophobia, and ocular hypertension.[] Abstract We have reviously described surgical techniues for draining severe cases of secondary glaucoma by means of an artificial implant.[] […] events Alpha‐agonists (e.g. apraclonidine, brimonidine) Allergic reactions Blurred vision Burning/stinging/discomfort Follicular conjunctival response Hyperemia Itching Photophobia[]

  • Uveitis

    […] eye; consensual photophobia is typical of iritis, whereas photophobia due to more superficial causes, such as conjunctivitis, is direct but not consensual.[] Complications may include band keratopathy, cataract, secondary glaucoma, posterior synechiae, cystoid macular edema, and hypotony.[] The proposed diagnoses were iridocyclitis and secondary glaucoma of the right eye.[]

  • Iritis

    Iritis, as seen in this patient, is a common form of anterior uveitis that can cause long-term debilitation, synechiae and secondary glaucoma, if left untreated.[] They may also have consensual photophobia, characterized by photophobia when light is directed to the unaffected eye.[] Topical beta-blockers (e.g. timolol maleate 0.5% bid) may be beneficial if secondary glaucoma is present and there are no other contraindications to beta-blocker usage.

  • Hydrophthalmos

    ABSTRACT To report a case of extensive globe enlargement due to secondary glaucoma in a young adult suffering from ocular surface disorders related to hypohidrotic ectodermal[] Only one (6.7 percent) patient presented with the classical triad of epiphora, photophobia and blepharospasm, while four (26.7 percent) presented with both epiphora and photophobia[] Photophobia b. Lacrimation c. Oedema of cornea d. Corneal opacity. 4.[]

  • Anticholinergic Toxicity

    ., sphincter atrophy, posterior synechiae), angle closure glaucoma, and iatrogenic mydriasis secondary to ocular surgery especially penetrating keratoplasty for treatment[] She complained of blurry vision, headache, photophobia and nausea. No specific treatment was needed, and the symptoms resolved about 12 h after the exposure.[] Blurred vision and photophobia may be due to mydraisis and paralysis of accomodation. Seizures, paralysis, respiratory depression, and coma may ensue in severe cases.[]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    CONCLUSIONS: Using the SUN criteria, our study confirmed that elevated IOP and secondary glaucoma are major complications in herpetic AU.[] A 14-year-old girl was seen for pain, redness, and photophobia shortly after finishing a cycle of high-dose Ara-C.[] A 29-year-old woman who underwent laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for myopic astigmatism in both eyes presented with severe pain, photophobia and decreased visual acuity[]

  • Scleritis and Episcleritis

    Complications: Scleral melt Corneal ulceration Secondary glaucoma Complicated cataract Exudative Retinal detachment (Posterior scleritis) Differential diagnosis: Other causes[] […] disease, Sarcoidosis, Cogan's syndrome, gout, herpes simplex, zoster, syphilis, pseudo-monas aeruginosa, Acanthamoeba, necrosis, scleromalacia perforans, ultrasonography, photophobia[] Patients may suffer complications from treatment more often than disease itself, with development of cataract or secondary glaucoma from chronic corticosteroid use.[]

  • Endophthalmitis

    Aniridia is a condition defined by total or partial loss of the iris and leads to decreased visual quality marked by glare and photophobia.[] Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[] The main presenting symptoms were photophobia (50%) and pain (40.9%). The most common signs were conjunctival injection (36.4%) and hypopyon (31.8%).[]

  • Rieger Syndrome

    After uneventful surgery, the patient presented with severe photophobia, redness of the eye, and decreased vision 72 h following the procedure.[] The patient had prominent Schwalbe's line in all quadrants, iris atrophy, and secondary glaucoma in both eyes.[] If photophobia is present in patients with corectopia and polycoria, contact lenses may be used to cover the holes in the iris.[]

  • Idiopathic anterior Uveitis

    Complications Complications of anterior uveitis are: synechiae (adhesion of the iris to contiguous structures), secondary glaucoma (hypertensive uveitis), iris atrophy, corneal[] To relieve pain and photophobia Mydriatic eye drops, such as atropine or cyclopentolate are used.[] Clinical signs and symptoms of anterior uveitis may include pain, photophobia, blurry vision, conjunctival hyperemia, anterior chamber cells, anterior chamber flare, fibrin[]
