Lens subluxation in iris retraction syndrome without retinal detachment
- 11 Downloads
One patient with uveitis presented iris retraction syndrome then developed to angle-closure glaucoma. Ultrasound biomicroscopy showed iris retraction with posterior synechiae and supraciliary effusion. The typical characteristic of iris retraction syndrome—retinal detachment—did not present in this case. Uveitis and supraciliary effusion could be the possible cause of posterior chamber hypotony. The lens subluxation found during the cataract operation alerted us that lens subluxation could be occult in this situation.
