    Diagnosis of an Invisible Iris Cyst Using Autorefractometry and Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Iris and ciliary body cysts are epithelium-lined spaces arising from their pigment epithelial layer. While they are stable and asymptomatic in most cases, multiple, circumferential cysts can cause angle closure glaucoma [ 1 ], [ 2 ]. A recent case report described the use of autorefractometry, which may be used during routine examination e.g. by optometrists or opticians, to detect asymptomatic iris cysts [ 3 ]. We describe a similar case where autorefractometry aided in the detection of an iris cyst and used anterior segment optic coherence tomography (AS-OCT) to confirm the diagnosis.
