- Updrawn pupil following cataract extraction. Vitreous is incarcerated in the cataract scar above. The inferior iris leaf is adherent to fibrous tissue that has proliferated along the tract of the anterior vitreous. Contraction of this fibrosed anterior vitreous has pulled the attached inferior iris leaf toward the wound and has resulted in an updrawn pupil. (E.P. No. 31006)
