Blunt ocular trauma and hyphema

J. E. Read, M. F. Goldberg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The various effects of blunt ocular trauma are outlined. A therapeutic regimen for traumatic hyphema was described from the time the hyphema is diagnosed to the time surgical intervention is performed. Total hyphema has a worse prognosis than subtotal hyphema. The prognosis for hyphema of any amount is guarded until the threat of secondary hemorrhage has passed.
