Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Let me go look at the picture. I'll be right back.
In the picture it looks like your pupil had been dilated with drops. If not, then your pupil is enlarged for some reason.
I can not tell by the picture if you have had cataract surgery in that eye with placement of an artificial lens but, in any event, what you are looking at are either adhesions of your iris to the front of your intraocular lens or to your natural lens.
These can occur after inflammation inside your eyeball and, usually, are nothing to worry about
Also, because the information I can get from the picture is limited, the adhesions may be the rare but normal iris attachments that can be seen in some people. This, once again , is nothing to worry about.
The technical name for this condition is posterior synechiae.
So. What is the take home message? If there is no active inflammation inside your eyeball, the posterior synechiae are nothing to worry about at this point.
Does this make sense to you?
