Iritis is an inflammation of the iris and cilliary body of the eye (anterior uveitis) manifesting as white blood cells floating in the aqueous humor. Excess iritis and steroid treatment of iritis can cause complications of cataract, scarring and glaucoma. Screening and staging iritis is done with high magnification on a slit lamp. An iritis Grading Kit can assist the trainee in slit lamp set-up, and comparative iritis grading. ABCD-Vision.org
