Fuch's heterochromic cyclitis
There are small keratic precipitates scattered throughout the corneal endothelium (stellate
keratic precipitates). The iris shows hypochromia (best seen in the day light) iris transillumination
due to iris atrophy. There may be irregular fine vessels on the iris.
The patient may have posterior subcaspular cataract. The anterior chamber may have flare or
cells. However, the conjunctiva is white. Posterior synechia does not occur.
- the iris may contain abnormal iris vessels
- check for the presence of trabeculectomy
