Iris Bombe in Dogs

A synechiae is an eye condition of adhesion of iris with other parts of the eys such as cornea (anterior synechiae) or lens (posterior synechiae). Iris bombe occurs when an increase of aqueous humour contained in the posterior chamber causes a forward bulging of the iris. The iris is bowed forward due to accumulation of fluid between iris and the lens. This condition may provoke an attack of angle-closure glaucoma as the iris may block the drainage angle.

Common symptoms related to iris bombe include


Corneal lesions, such as ulcers

Excessive tearing


Variation in the color of the iris

Opacity of the lens


Decreased papillary reaction to light
