Rare and Unusual Diseases
Corneal Stromal Deposits in a Presumed Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Variant
A slit-lamp photograph of the left eye of a patient with a presumed Ehlers Danlos syndrome variant shows superior refractile whitish-brown corneal deposits—a finding that has never been reported to the contributing physicians’ knowledge—and a temporal pseudopterygium from the 2 to 8 clock positions.
This photograph shows an intact sphincter in the two pupils of an eye with polycoria.
This image shows an incidental finding of melanocytoma of the iris in a 14-year-old patient who presented for a routine eye exam. A raised cobblestone appearance and slight pupillary distortion are evident.
Enter the Dragon
A 68-year-old man presented with draconic dislocation of his right residual lens capsule and Soemmering ring, both prolapsing out from the pupil. He had undergone pars plana vitrectomy, scleral buckle, and a sutured IOL followed by IOL repositioning 10 years later.
This is a photograph of a patient with postuveal iridoschisis resulting from chronic anterior uveitis with intermittent exacerbations.
This photograph shows a posterior polar cataract that resembles popcorn.
This slit-lamp photograph was taken 1 day after an uneventful LASIK procedure using a corneal flap with a nasal hinge. The patient had unknowingly rubbed his eye in his sleep.
This photograph shows a traumatic phacocele. In the image, the superior and nasal conjunctiva evinces a well-defined, elevated subconjunctiva with a yellow-orange mass underneath featuring the herniated lens.
Too Close for Comfort
This is a photograph of a glass fragment embedded in the cornea after a motor vehicle accident. The fragment extended into the anterior chamber and stopped just short of the anterior lens capsule.
Decentered IOL With Crumpled Capsular Bag
This image shows a decentered rigid one-piece IOL temporally (yellow arrow), temporal zonular dehiscence, and a crumpled capsular bag (blue arrows) after an intraoperative complication.
Lash in the Anterior Chamber
In this slit-lamp image, an eyelash in the anterior chamber protrudes out of a corneal sideport incision after phacoemulsification and IOL implantation.
This photograph shows an IOL, capsular opacity, and lens epithelial cell regrowth against the tapetal reflex after phacoemulsification in a dog.
