was observed in 8 cases (11%) and all of them had scleral tunnel surgery.
Cavan Burns, 17, almost lost the sight in his left eye after a freak training injury left him needing treatment for Hyphema
, mild aqueous flare consistent with anterior uveitis, and 2 air bubbles in the anterior chamber (Fig 1 A) obscured the left pupil, precluding fundic examination on that side.
Short-term hypotony lasting for <2 weeks was observed in 2 patients (6.6%), and 1 patient (3.3%) with neovascular glaucoma had transient hyphema
resolved within 1 month following treatment with observation.
After a careful screening, 436 patients were excluded because of at least one of the following: episcleritis, keratoconjunctivitis, keratitis, conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, hyphema
, vitreous degeneration, vitreous hemorrhage, and retinal neovascularization.
We did not observe other complications such as hyphema
, iris prolapse, IOL drop, retinal detachment, and endophthalmitis.
but Nd: YAG laser has its own problems like corneal haze, uveitis, hyphema
, lens pits, and retinal detachment and the most consistent complication is the post-capsulotomy rise in intraocular pressure (IOP).
After removal of the TM debris, a few viscoelastic materials were injected to minimize postoperative hyphema
. The patients with visually significant cataracts received phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation immediately after Trabectome.
Other ocular complication found in these patients were Diploipa (19.23%), decreased visual acuity (17.3%), Enophthalmous (9.61%), Hyphema
(5.76%) and blindness as 3.85%.
One of the more common serious presentations after blunt eye trauma is the presence of a hyphema
due to a tear of the ciliary body or iris, resulting in the anterior chamber being filled with blood [10-13].
The left eye globe with hyphema
was protruded from the orbital space and attached to the optic nerve (Figure 1).
