What is Glaucomatocyclitic Crisis (Posner – Scholossman Syndrome)?  What is the treatment for Glaucomatocyclitic Crisis?

 

Glaucomatocyclitic crisis is a condition where one’s intraocular pressure (eye pressure) is elevated because of a mild uveitis (eye inflammation.) The exact cause of this syndrome is not known. Typically, this occurs in patients between 20-45 years of age. One’s eye pressure can be significantly high, often in the 40-50 mmhg range (normal 10-21 mmHg.) The treatment involves medications for curing the uveitis (eye inflammation.) Typically, when the eye inflammation resolves then the eye pressure will return to normal. However, if the eye pressures are extreme or if the pressures are still elevated then topical or oral antiglaucoma medication is often used.
