Figure 13. Herpetic keratitis: scarring and vascularization of the cornea remaining despite treatment. Can only be removed. by corneal grafting. 42 Ophthalmology stains with fluorescein. Untreated, the lesion enlarges and may cover a large portion of the cornea. Spread to the deeper layers of the cornea results in a disciform keratitis, producing more pain and blurring of vision (Figure 11). Subsequent attacks may only involve these deeper layers without producing an epithelial ulcer. Each attack leaves more scarring of the cornea, which may contain cholesterol crystals (Figures 12 and 13).
Macular Haemorrhage Retinal haemorrhage is usually associated with vascular disease (arteriosclerosis, diabetes and hypertension) or trauma. Haemorrhage at the macula can extend forward and become localized between the vitreous and the retina, to form a subhyaloid haemorrhage. This has a characteristic hemispherical shape with a straight upper edge (Figure 5). The condition occurs with trauma or when arterial disease exists. Complete resolution with full recovery of central vision can occur when the cause is traumatic, but a permanent central field defect may persist if the haemorrhage is longstanding.
Malignant Melanoma This is the commonest of the malignant tumours of the uveal tract. It presents in the fifth decade either as a chance finding on routine ophthalmoscopy or as a result of visual field defects. The lesion is raised, with a variable amount of pigmentation. The tumour rapidly increases in size and may break through Bruch's membrane and raise the retina with a mushroom-like extension (Figure 14).
