Answer

Anterior chamber inflammatory reaction: This can vary from trace cell and flare to a vigorous fibrinoid anterior chamber reaction. Generally, this finding is more common with alkaline injuries because of the greater depth of penetration. Uveitis is generally another very poor prognostic sign.
