Grading of blood cells in the anterior chamber is as follows:

  • 0 - None
  • 1+ - Faint (barely detectable)
  • 2+ - Moderate (clear iris and lens details)
  • 3+ - Moderate (hazy iris and lens details)
  • 4+ - Intense (fibrin deposits, coagulated aqueous)

See Clinical Presentation for more detail.
