PURPOSE To investigate the relationship of Krukenberg spindles (KS) and pigmented lens striae (PLS), clinical signs related to iris pigment dispersal and possibly glaucoma. METHODS During a 31-month period, 5 practitioners in an urban, primary eye care setting examined consecutive patients for KS and PLS. Multiple logistic regression was used to evaluate relationships among KS, PLS, and other variables.
