Caption: Figure 1: Small, discrete, round, well-defined, white keratic precipitates on the cornea.
Patients were examined on postoperative day 1, 7, 14 & 28 for--Intraocular pressure, Anterior chamber cells and flare with slit lamp examination (graded according to the standardization of uveitis nomenclature), Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) on day 28 and adverse effects like corneal oedema, keratic precipitates, foreign body sensation, congestion, discomfort and watering etc.
In addition to the erythema and herpetiform vesicular desquamation observed on the right upper eyelid and frontal region, slit-lamp examination revealed corneal epithelial keratitis, 2+ cells in the anterior chamber, and keratic precipitates. The patient's systemic medical history was unremarkable except for diabetes mellitus (controlled with oral antidiabetic therapy for 10 years) and hypertension.
Examination of the anterior segment revealed a few fine inferior keratic precipitates on both endothelium and one-plus anterior chamber inflammatory cells in the right eye, but a quiet left anterior chamber.
Signs of anterior uveitis may include circumcorneal injection, fine keratic precipitates, cells and flare in the anterior chamber, irregular pupil margin and posterior synechiae.
Unlike uveitic glaucoma (Such as that seen in phacoanaphylactic glaucoma), no keratic precipitates typically are present.
