Ocular Complications of Gout

Gout has also been known to be associated with eye involvement. A case report[46] that examined patients with severe gout revealed that a majority of patients had bilateral-ocular redness caused by hyperemia of the episcleral as well as the conjunctival vessels. Tophi can also deposit in the conjunctiva causing a chalky appearance (Fig. 2), as well as be associated with uveitis.[47,48]
