The diagnosis of iritis is confirmed by examining the eye with a slit lamp (a special microscope designed for eye examination). Your ophthalmologist can see cells (white blood cells) and flare (particles of protein) in the aqueous humor (fluid that is produced in the eye).
Your physician will take a careful history looking for possible causes of iritis.
Other findings aid your ophthalmologist in diagnosing iritis.
