Soemmering's Ring in Ultrasound Biomicroscopy
Seeing is believing
A 79-year-old gentleman with bilateral eye pseudophakia presented with sudden onset of right eye blurriness. On presentation, his best corrected vision was 6/12. Anterior segment examination revealed deep anterior chamber with the presence of anterior chamber cells of 1+ and high intraocular pressure of 26mmHg. The pupil was 5mm in diameter despite dilatation. Intraocular lens was stable; however, there was no full visualisation of the anterior capsule. There was no other sign of uveitis. Fundus was normal. Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed two hyperreflective lesions (as shown in red arrows) obliterating sulcus space, aligning with the diagnosis of soemmering’s ring.
