Eye, Iris - Synechia, Anterior in a female F344/N rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). There is adhesion of the iris to the posterior cornea (arrow) due to abnormal fibrovascular tissue formation.
Image of iris synechia in the eye from a male F344/Ntac rat in a subchronic study
Eye, Iris - Synechia in a male F344/NTac rat from a subchronic study. There are concurrent anterior (A) and posterior (P) iridial synechiae, partial protrusion of the iris into the corneal stroma (staphyloma) (S), and a cataractous lens (L).
