Peripheral anterior synechiae

Peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS) are adhesions of the peripheral iris to the structures in the angle of the anterior chamber. They may be associated with a variety of conditions such as angle closure glaucoma, neovascular glaucoma, uveitis, and iridocorneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome. This gonioscopic photo demonstrates a high PAS which extends to Schwalbe's line and is characteristic of ICE syndrome.
