Caption

Cornea ulcer and rubeosis. Blind and bloodshot eye of a 83-year-old man with rubeosis iridis (also called rubeosis glaucoma), where abnormal blood vessels have formed over the iris. Rubeosis iridis is seen only in patients with severe glaucoma, caused by a build up of fluid within the eyeball. The cornea is the transparent layer covering the iris (brown) and pupil (black). An ulcer (circular spot over the pupil) has also developed, possibly as a result of the rubeosis. For the eye after dyeing with fluorescin, see M155/613.
