What is Traumatic Glaucoma? What is the treatment for Traumatic Glaucoma?

 

Traumatic glaucoma is cause by blunt or penetrating trauma to the eye. Often the trauma causes a hyphema (blood in the eye) which can block the outflow of aqueous from the eye. This will cause the elevation of intraocular pressure (eye pressure.) Trauma can also cause angle recession or iridodyalisis that can cause glaucoma years after the initial trauma. Treatment includes treating the trauma and inflammation. Antiglaucoma medication can be used to help lower the intraocular pressure.
