  • 174. SIGNS Reduced visual acuity Ciliary injection : diffuse superficial conjunctival hyperemia that would indicate conjunctivitis, as opposed to the circumlimbal redness of anterior uveitis. Blurred vision and photophobia are usually absent with conjunctivitis. Keratitic precipitates ( on corneal endothelium) : in acute cases KPs may be fine and white; in chronic cases, large and yellowish. Colored or pigmented KPs suggest prior episodes of anterior uveitis. 63/85
  • 175. SIGNS (cont.) Hypopyon Vessels on iris dilated Pigment and fibrin deposits on the anterior surface of the lens are suggestive of synechiae. The presence or absence of posterior subcapsular cataract should be well documented because PSC is a frequent complication of both the disease and the therapy. Posterior synechiae - irregular pupil Anterior synechiae - may occlude drainage angle 64/85
  • 176. 65/85
  • 177. Marked circumcorneal congestion with contracting fibrin in the anterior chamber and a pupil in mid-mydriasis. Posterior synechiae between iris and lens after iridocyclitis give the pupil the shape of cloverleaves 66/85
  • 178. OPHTHALMIA Sympathetic ophthalmia (sometimes referred to as sympathetic ophthalmitis or sympathetic uveitis) is a rare form of bilateral panuveitis. It is a specific type of uveitis in response to trauma to one of the eyes. 67/85
  • 179. INVESTIGATIONS A first episode of unilateral nongranulomatous acute uveitis can be diagnosed by history and clinical examination alone and does not need laboratory investigation.If history and examination are normal but the uveitis is granulomatous, recurrent or bilateral, the following screening investigations should be carried out: Full blood count and ESR HLA-B27 Antinuclear antibody Screening tests for syphilis and tuberculosis Chest x-ray 68/85
  • 180. MANAGEMENT General measures Drops to dilate the pupil (cyclopegics) such as cyclopentolate 1% or atropine 1% should be prescribed, but this is best done by a specialist as this treatment is contraindicated in narrow angle glaucoma. - To prevent adhesion of the iris to the anterior lens capsule(posterior synechia), which can lead to iris bombe and elevated IOP - To stabilize the blood-aqueous barrier and help prevent further protein leakage (flare). - To relieve pain by immobilizing the iris When using cyclopegics, the patient should be warned that the pupil will appear large and they will have a temporary problem with vision in the eye in which the drops have been administered. 69/85
  • 181. Steroids Steroid eye drops such as prednisolone 1% are the first line treatment for the management of the inflammation. In more severe cases, steroid injection or even systemic therapy may be required. They should normally be prescribed by a specialist, as they can cause corneal ulceration when the diagnosis is herpes simplex infection, steroid glaucoma and on prolonged use, steroid cataract. 70/85
  • 182. Adjunctive therapy Secondary causes should be treated as appropriate. Surgery Removal of the vitreous may be necessary when persistent floaters severely impede visual acuity.This procedure may also be useful as a combined therapeutic and diagnostic test as, once removed, the vitreous can be analysed to exclude infection or malignancy. 71/85
  • 183. COMPLICATIONS Posterior synechiae - these commonest complication of anterior uveitis, if numerous can cause blockage of aqueous flow leading to a rise in intra-ocular pressure and can complicate cataract operations Cataract Glaucoma Retinal detachment Neovascularisation of the retina, optic nerve, or iris Cystoid macular edema(swelling of the macula) 72/85
  • 184. ACUTE CONGESTIVE GLAUCOMA Primary narrow or closed angle glaucoma is the most common cause for glaucoma emergency cases. In acute congestive cases, the onset is usually sudden. Condition in which the iris is apposed to the trabecular meshwork at the angle of the anterior chamber of the eye, the outflow of aqueous from the eye is blocked, which causes a rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) Immediate treatment is essential to prevent damage to the optic nerve and loss of vision. 73/85
  • 185. Angle closure may occur via 2 mechanisms. The iris may be pushed forward into contact with the trabecular meshwork, as in pupillary block or it may be pulled anteriorly, as occurs with other inflammatory conditions. In older people, incidence of primary ACG increases as the lens enlarges, and the depth and volume of the anterior chamber decrease. Patients with hyperopic eyes are more likely to have shallow anterior chambers and narrow angles, predisposed to develop ACG. Dilation of the eye may precipitate an attack of acute ACG because the peripheral iris relaxes when dilated to midposition, it may bow anteriorly and maximize iris-lens apposition, possibly causing pupillary block. 74/85
  • 186. SYMPTOMS 1)Onset of severe ocular pain, nausea and vomiting, headache, and blurred vision is sudden. 2)Patients may complain of seeing haloes around lights. Haloes and blurry vision are the result of corneal edema. 3)The attack may have been precipitated by pupillary dilation, possibly during an ophthalmic examination. Patients with acute ACG are extremely uncomfortable and distressed. 4)Some patients may experience intermittent episodes of partial angle closure and relatively elevated IOP without ever experiencing a frank attack of ACG. 5)Patients may be totally asymptomatic, or they may report incidents of mild pain with slightly blurred vision or seeing haloes around lights. These symptoms resolve spontaneously as the angle reopens. 75/85
  • 187. PHYSICAL EXAMINATION Examination of a patient who presents with suspected ACG should include gonioscopy, tonometry, biomicroscopy, and ophthalmoscopy. Diagnosis made by gonioscopic visualization of an occluded anterior chamber angle. Tonometry demonstrates an elevated IOP, which may be as high as 40-80 mm Hg. Ophthalmoscopy may reveal a swollen optic disc in an acute attack or excavation if episodes have been chronic. Unilateral involvement and worsening symptoms are common in acute attacks. 76/85
  • 188. If an attack persists or if several milder incidents of angle closure have occurred in the past, peripheral anterior synechiae and adhesions may be visible between the cornea and iris. Peripheral anterior synechiae may destroy the trabecular meshwork, while adhesions may cause necrosis and permanent dilation of the iris. 77/85
  • 189. MANAGEMENT Definitive treatment of ACG is laser iridotomy, or, if the iris cannot be accessed by laser, surgical iridectomy. Laser iridotomy: Treatment of choice for pupillary-block ACG is laser iridotomy. Iridotomy with an argon or Nd:YAG laser. If the cornea is extremely cloudy or the patient cannot cooperate, incisional peripheral iridectomy may be performed instead of a laser procedure. 78/85
  • 190. 79/85
  • 191. 80/85
  • 192. LASER GONIOPLASTY Laser may be used to create stromal burns in the peripheral iris. As the iris contracts, the anterior chamber angle deepens. Use laser gonioplasty as treatment of ACG due to plateau iris and nanophthalmos, or use it as a temporary measure to open the angle until laser iridotomy can be performed. 81/85
  • 193. MEDICAL TREATMENT IV acetazolamide ( ↓ aqueous humor production ) B blocker ( ↓ aqueous humor production ) Pilocarpine ( constrict pupil ) 82/85
  • 194. DIFFERENTIATION OF 4 COMMON CAUSES OF THE RED EYES Corneal trauma or infection Acute congestive glaucoma Acute iridocyclitis Acuteconjunctivitis Common Uncommon Common Extremely common Incidence Watery or purulent None None Moderate to copious Discharge Usually blurred Markedly blurred Slightly blurred No effect on vision Vision Moderate to severe Severe Moderate Variable Pain 83/85
