168 Possible Causes for Photophobia, Transillumination of the Iris, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Uveitis

    Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[touchophthalmology.com] Visual acuity is only decreased in severe cases associated with hypopyon. The signs of anterior uveitis include the following.[symptoma.com] […] eye; consensual photophobia is typical of iritis, whereas photophobia due to more superficial causes, such as conjunctivitis, is direct but not consensual.[emedicine.com]

  • Albinism

    An African girl with OCA-2 showing iris transillumination, yellowish tinted hair and many solar lentigines.[clinicaladvisor.com] A 39-year-old man with foveal hypoplasia, nystagmus, and decreased visual acuity was found to have multiple, cutaneous, hypopigmented macules.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] year-old Caucasian girl of northern European ancestry presented with findings suggestive of ocular albinism, although she maintains good visual acuity and lacks nystagmus and photophobia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glaucoma

    The patient had severe bilateral iris transillumination defects with posterior synechiae formation and 3 pigment with rare cell in the anterior chamber.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 2 months, choroidal swelling had completely resolved, best-corrected visual acuity was 20/50, and intraocular pressure was 11 mm Hg.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] events Alpha‐agonists (e.g. apraclonidine, brimonidine) Allergic reactions Blurred vision Burning/stinging/discomfort Follicular conjunctival response Hyperemia Itching Photophobia[doi.org]

  • Oculocutaneous Albinism

    An African girl with OCA-2 showing iris transillumination, yellowish tinted hair and many solar lentigines.[clinicaladvisor.com] It is associated with decreased visual acuity, nystagmus, strabismus, and photophobia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] biosynthesis characterized by a generalized reduction in pigmentation of hair, skin and eyes and variable ocular findings including nystagmus, reduced visual acuity and photophobia[orpha.net]

  • Ocular Albinism

    Other definite findings include lack or absence of stereoacuity, transillumination defects of iris and pendular nystagmus which typically develops in affected males during[symptoma.com] A 39-year-old man with foveal hypoplasia, nystagmus, and decreased visual acuity was found to have multiple, cutaneous, hypopigmented macules.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] year-old Caucasian girl of northern European ancestry presented with findings suggestive of ocular albinism, although she maintains good visual acuity and lacks nystagmus and photophobia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nephropathic Cystinosis

    […] thickening and transillumination were noted in the older age groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinician- and self-assessed estimations of photophobia were correlated (R2 0.61).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Photophobia was classified as grade 0 (none) for no photophobia, grade 1 (mild) for photophobia in bright light, grade 2 (moderate) for photophobia in room light and grade[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chediak Higashi Syndrome

    The iris has transillumination defects and the retina is hypopigmented. Patients are photophobic and often have nystagmus.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, type 2, displays cutaneous albinism, decreased visual acuity, prolonged bleeding, neutropenia and recurrent infections.[clinicaladvisor.com] […] peroxidase-positive granules, cytoplasmic inclusions, and Dohle bodies; characterized by hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy, anemia, neutropenia, partial albinism, nystagmus, photophobia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Oculocutaneous Albinism Type 5

    Ocular findings include iris transillumination, blonde fundus, and foveal hypoplasia.[coavision.org] visual acuity.[ashg.org] People with this condition usually have vision problems such as reduced sharpness; nystagmus and strabismus; and increased sensitivity to light (photophobia).[diseaseinfosearch.org]

  • Corneal Stromal Dystrophy

    transillumination.[aop.org.uk] However, the rate of clinically significant recurrence, both recurrent erosions and decreased visual acuity, in the first 5 years is similar in CDB and lattice dystrophies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Refractive error, photophobia, strabismus and resulting amblyopia with searching nystagmus are common in affected individuals.[genome.jp]

  • X-Linked Recessive Ocular Albinism

    Perhaps three-quarters of carrier females have transillumination defects in the iris.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Visual acuity directly improves with decreased nystagmus.[reviewofophthalmology.com] Donaldson DD (1974): Transillumination of the iris.
