Blunt ocular trauma and hyphema

J. E. Read, Morton F Goldberg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

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.
