Complete ocular examination noted hyphema, mild aqueous flare and iridal hyperemia consistent with anterior uveitis, and 1 air bubble in the anterior chamber OS (Fig 1C).
Other clinical signs to be aware of when evaluating a bird with corneal ulceration are variable degrees of aqueous flare (anterior uveitis), depending on the ulcer's severity and duration; variable degrees of corneal edema; and fluorescein stain uptake that will adhere to any exposed corneal stroma and is an essential diagnostic tool to delineate fully the ulcer's extent.
Evaluation of the anterior aqueous flare in patients with glaucoma has also been addressed recently [27-29, 32].
Therefore, anterior aqueous flare measurements should be considered in the staging and evaluation of the risk progression to glaucoma and be considered as a marker of ocular disease progression in ATTRV30M patients.
(10) In a study comparing hydrophilic, hydrophobic, and silicone IOLs, it was found that the amount of aqueous flare
increased in all three types of IOL in the first month compared to preoperative levels; however, the amount of aqueous flare
observed with the hydrophobic IOL was significantly higher than with the other types of IOLs.
Post-operative inflammation was measured in terms of grades of anterior chamber (AC) cells and grades of aqueous flare
seen on slit lamp examination (Takagi, Japan), with a 2mm long and 1mm wide slit beam with maximal light intensity (Table-1)
Other minor complications included corneal burns, aqueous flare
and pigment dispersion.
In this bird, as in mammals with ocular lymphoma, the anterior uveitis was characterized by aqueous flare
, rubeosis iridis, and hyphema.
