Answer

The history can be valuable in identifying the process or processes that may have led to PAS formation. Specific inquiry should include the following:

  • History of ocular infection, surgery, or trauma
  • Family history of  glaucoma or other eye disease
  • Medical history, specifically rheumatologic disease and inflammatory syndromes, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension
  • Use of ocular and systemic medications
