181 Possible Causes for 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] , ciliary body, iridocorneal angle), leading to a spectrum of iris transillumination defects, microhyphaemas and pigmentary dispersion, concomitant with elevated intraocular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Albinism

  • 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] […] vision was defined as the proportion of participants with a decrease of 2 or more lines on the Snellen chart or one or more categories of visual acuity when unable to read[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    POAG but IOP always measured within normal limits) Primary angle closure glaucoma (narrow drainage angle on gonioscopy) Pigment dispersion glaucoma (Krukenberg spindle, iris[eyewiki.aao.org] His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) decreased gradually over 5 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute angle-closure glaucoma (an ophthalmic emergency) causes excruciating unilateral pain and pressure, blurred vision, decreased visual acuity, haloes around lights, diplopia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Diabetic Cataract

    iris transillumination has been noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In majority of the subjects, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) gradually improved in each subsequent follow-up visit.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and uncorrected visual acuity improved to 20/20 and J1 in both eyes.[scielo.br]

  • 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] For one of these three eyes, visual acuity decreased to no light perception.[healio.com] .  Gonioscopy – pigment accumulation along the Schwalbe’s line especially inferiorly (Sampaolesi’s line)  Iris transillumination – radial slit – like transillumination defects[slideshare.net]

  • Posterior Uveitis

    Corneal sensation with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects may help identify underlying herpetic disease.[retinalphysician.com] However, thereafter the visual acuity decreases again. Cataract and elevated IOP are common side effects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Corneal sensation is a useful test along with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects, which may suggest underlying herpetic disease.[ophthalmologymanagement.com]
