Fuchs heterochromic iridocyclitis cases from
Fuchs Heterochromic Iridocyclitis - slit lamp only (1): 42 year-old man presented for cataract evaluation. He was found to have iris atrophy and keratic precipitates and a diagnosis of Fuchs heterochromic iridocyclitis was made.

Fuchs Heterochromic Iridocyclitis - slit lamp only (2): This 39 year-old woman had a ten-year history of iritis in the right eye. She presented on two medications with inadequate intraocular pressure control. On examination she had an intraocular pressure of 40 mmHg with iris atrophy in stellate KP. She had neovascularization of the iris and the iridocorneal angle.
