587 Possible Causes for Secondary Glaucoma, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Glaucoma

    Abstract We have reviously described surgical techniues for draining severe cases of secondary glaucoma by means of an artificial implant.[doi.org] 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] Secondary glaucoma occurs due to a known cause. Both open- and closed-angle glaucoma can be secondary when caused by something known.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Uveitis

    Complications may include band keratopathy, cataract, secondary glaucoma, posterior synechiae, cystoid macular edema, and hypotony.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Visual acuity is only decreased in severe cases associated with hypopyon. The signs of anterior uveitis include the following.[symptoma.com] In addition, trabecular obstruction, due to either cellular debris or peripheral anterior synechiae, can lead to secondary glaucoma due to chronic angle closure.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cataract

    In this case report, we described the examination and diagnosis of a case of iridoschisis accompanied by secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This results in a decrease in visual acuity and eventual blindness if untreated.[icd9data.com] She was found to have secondary pigment dispersion glaucoma as the intraocular lens had been inadvertently placed into the ciliary sulcus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Neovascular glaucoma: secondary angle closure glaucoma with rubeosis iridis. Neovascular glaucoma: secondary angle closure glaucoma with rubeosis iridis.[alpfmedical.info] Pain is the main symptom and may be accompanied by decrease in visual acuity. Early diagnosis and treatment is important to avoid permanent visual loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No significant decrease in visual acuity was observed at days 1 or 7 and at months 1, 3, 6, and 12 after operation; however, a significant decrease in IOP was observed at[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Endophthalmitis

    Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The visual acuity decreased to hand motions or light perception postoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: We report on a 62-year-old female presenting with a sterile hypopyon iritis with secondary glaucoma and an underlying rheumatoid disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    Conditions such as inflammation or trauma can contribute to elevated intraocular pressure in secondary glaucoma, whereas congenital abnormalities of the trabecular meshwork[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) decreased gradually over 5 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her visual acuity first decreased before the age of 10. At age 13, the visual acuity was 3/10 and 9/10 in the right and left eyes, respectively.[jmg.bmj.com]

  • 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.[reviewofoptometry.com] However, a red eye in conjunction with symptoms such as photophobia, pain, and decreased visual acuity is an important clue to a much more serious disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications can include decreased visual acuity and/or blindness, glaucoma, cataracts (duration of inflammation is directly related to risk), irregular pupil (due to synechia[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Orbital Cellulitis

    Secondary complications such as glaucoma are treated as they arise. [3] To the best of authors’ knowledge, there has been no previously reported case of bilateral orbital[nigerianjournalofophthalmology.com] Decreased visual acuity and chemosis are less frequently seen: Proptosis (there may be exposure keratopathy).[patient.info] Visual acuity was grossly decreased. The case was diagnosed as left orbital cellulitis and treated with broad spectrum intravenous antibiotics and oral steriods.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Peripheral iris cysts may produce angle closure and may cause secondary angle-closure glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 69-year-old male developed a painful red eye with decreased visual acuity a few days after ptosis correction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The strikingly decreased visual acuity associated with mild to moderate increased IOP is a clue to the diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    Such tumors are rare in non-white races and secondary glaucoma is an uncommon presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For one of these three eyes, visual acuity decreased to no light perception.[healio.com] One of the complications of vitreoretinal surgery is secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
