Presumed Early ICE

This is a 62 year-old woman whose physician noticed an iridocorneal adhesion one month prior to this exam. The same physician had followed this patient earlier and had never noticed a similar change. The patient’s intraocular pressure was 16 mmHg in both eyes. The central corneal endothelium was normal in this eye but the diagnosis by both the corneal specialist and glaucoma specialist was that this is probably a very early variant of ICE with abnormalities only in the peripheral cornea.
