Synechiae are adhesions between the iris and other structures in the eye, either the cornea or lens. Iris bombe occurs when there is a complete adhesion between the cat’s iris and the capsule of the lens of the eye, creating a 360 degree area of adhesion. This degree of adhesion results in a billowing of the iris forward into the eye.
