Head-To-Toe Assessment (H. Anterior Chamber and Iris)

The anterior chamber and the iris are easily inspected in conjunction with the cornea. The technique of oblique illumination is also useful in assessing the anterior chamber.

Normal Findings:

·    The anterior chamber is transparent.
·    No noted any visible materials.
·    Color of the iris depends on the person’s race (black, blue, brown or green).
·    From the side view, the iris should appear flat and should not be bulging forward. There should be NO crescent shadow casted on the other side when illuminated from one side.
