Assessing anterior chamber inflammation is highly subjective and challenging. Although various grading systems attempt to offer objectivity and standardization, the clinical assessment has high interobserver variability. Traditional techniques, such as laser flare meter and fluorophotometry, are not widely used since they are time-consuming. With the development of optical coherence tomography with high sensitivity, direct imaging offers an excellent alternative to assess objectively inflammation with the potential for automated analysis. We describe various anterior chamber inflammation grading methods and discuss their utility, advantages, and disadvantages.
