Imaging Studies

Image studies may include the following:

  • Intravenous fluorescein angiogram and electroretinography (ERG) to assess retinal ischemia

  • B-scan ultrasound

  • Optical coherence tomography [4] - Images observed per grade of neovascular glaucoma

Grades are as follows:

  • Grade 1: No modification

  • Grade 2: A slightly hyper-reflective linear iris secondary to neovascularization

  • Grade 3: A thickened hyper-reflective iridocorneal angle with possible iridocorneal synechiae

  • Grade 4: Closed iridocorneal angle associated with iris contraction and uveae ectropion
