Iritis is an inflammatory process of the anterior chamber, often associated with blunt trauma or infection. Redness, pain, and photophobia occur with iritis. No discharge is seen, and the pupil is constricted. Circumcorneal (ciliary) injection may occur. IOP is normal or low. Initial treatment may include dilation with homatropine and loteprednol eta-bonate (Lotemax) for patient comfort, with immediate referral to an ophthalmologist. Consultation should be obtained for all such patients as soon as possible.
