Ancillary Testing
Biometry testing revealed an axial length of 22.43 mm in the right eye and 22.26 mm in the left eye as measured by LENSTAR LS 900 Biometer (Haag-Streit USA). His anterior chamber depth was recorded at 2.06 mm in the right eye and 2.03 mm in the left eye. B-scan ultrasonography revealed uveal effusions without ocular masses (Figure 1) and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) confirmed shallow anterior chambers with uveal effusions in both eyes (Figure 2A).
