Yes, this hypopion (a leukocyte exudate in the anterior eye chamber), caused by iritis.
Iritis is a form of uveitis anterior. There's an acute and a chronic version; if treatment is provided, acute iritis improves quickly. Chronic iritis can exist for months or years before recovery occurs. Chronic iritis does not respond to treatment as well as acute iritis does. Chronic iritis is also accompanied by a higher risk of serious visual impairment.
