Hello and hope you are doing well.

Typically on an MRI, areas of abnormal brightness or hyperintense, suggest increased water content. FLAIR is "Fluid attenuated inversion recovery." It is a pulse sequence used in magnetic resonance imaging that essentially removes fluids from the picture. FLAIR is a common MRI technique used when shooting MRI images of MS patients to eliminate CSF, or cerebrospinal fluid, in the image. This allows any periventricular hyperintense lesions, such as multiple sclerosis (MS) scars, to be visible. An abnormal flair could be indicative indicative of meningitis.

The findings may be unrelated to glaucoma, which in increased pressure in the eyes.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
