The other accurate predictive factors were the presence of a mixed or epithelioid cell type (89% sensitivity, 43% specificity), ciliary body involvement (68% sensitivity, 75% specificity), and largest tumor diameter (68% sensitivity, 75% specificity).

Pressure is then applied on the central cornea with the goniolens, which stretches the limbal scleral ring, causing the iris to flatten and the ciliary body and iris to rotate posteriorly, thus opening the angle.

Diagnosis is usually through slit lamp biomicroscopy although ultrasound biomicroscopy can be used to detect extension towards the ciliary body and to differentiate it from iris cysts.
In addition, ciliary body involvement, spread into the sclera or extraocular spread, presence of PAS+ vascular mimicry patterns, and tumor size were also noted.
Other supporting studies have helped to provide insight into the reasons why astaxanthin helps to reduce eye fatigue, including such things as increased capillary blood flow and improved ciliary body function.
Uveitis is a condition characterized by inflammation inside the eye, specifically affecting one or more of the three parts of the eye that make up the uvea: the iris (the colored part of the eye), the ciliary body (behind the iris, responsible for manufacturing the fluid inside the eye), and the choroid (the vascular lining tissue underneath the retina).
