    What’s this called, and what could be the underlying condition?

    It's not hypopion.

    Correct answer:

    Band keratopathy (or bandvormige keratopathie in Dutch ;-)).

    There's band-shaped subepithelial calcification, which can cause partial loss of vision and a corpus alienum sensation. It can be seen in chronic uveitis or glaucoma. It can also be a sign of hypercalcemia, e.g. due to hyperparathyroidism of kidney failure.
