    Uveitis (Anterior)

    In this image, a slit beam is shone through the cornea (right light reflection) and aqueous humor (middle light reflection) onto the iris (left light reflection). Cells (tiny white spots) and flare (diffuse haziness) in the aqueous humor, seen within the middle column of light, are a classic sign of anterior uveitis.
