Cataract Surgery in Uveitis

Figure 1

A 54-year-old farmer gave history of loss of vision and repeated episodes of redness and pain in the left eye following injury 40 years ago. B scan of the left eye showed findings suggestive of old vitreous hemorrhage and retinal detachment. Since visual acuity was doubtful perception of light, surgery was not advised for him. Diffuse (a) and slit (b) photographs show the left eye with peripheral corneal scar and peripheral anterior synechiae and total posterior synechia with cataract. At the temporal periphery, there is an incidental conjunctival lesion suggestive of actinic keratosis. Note the polychromatic crystals (cholesterolosis) deposited on the iris.
