To the Editor: Ocular manifestations other than conjunctivitis have rarely been reported in patients with Lyme disease (1). Occasional case reports have documented the association of Lyme disease and several syndromes affecting eyes, including blurred temporal vision due to high intracraneal pressure, diplopia caused by oculomotor nerve palsies, ischemic optic neuropathy, keratitis, pseudotumor cerebri, choroiditis and exudative retinal detachments, and orbital myositis. To our knowledge, only a few cases of anterior uveitis have been described (2, 3). We have recently observed the development of an anterior uveitis in a patient diagnosed as having Lyme disease.
