Posterior Synechiae

Posterior Synechiae 

Clinical features:

  • Adhesions between posterior iris and the anterior lens surface
  • Often seen in acute anterior uveitis and chronic posterior uveitis
  • May be complicated with angle closure glaucoma due to anterior bowing of the peripheral iris (iris bombè) especially when 360-degree adhesion (seclusio pupillae) occurs
  • Treatment may be attempted with cycloplegic drops.
