Management of Case of Traumatic Dislocation of Lens in Anterior Chamber

Dr. Mrunal Neve | Dr. Satish Desai [2]

Abstract: A 75 - year - old man presented to the ophthalmology department complaining of decreased vision and pain in the left eye after blunt trauma to the eye. On evaluation, the vision was limited to perception of light, and the intraocular pressure was 50.6 mmHg. Secondary acute angle closure glaucoma, with pupillary block due to anterior dislocation of the lens, was diagnosed. The intraocular pressure remained elevated after medical therapy, and the patient underwent intracapsular cataract extraction and anterior vitrectomy. The possibility of elevated intraocular pressure due to lens dislocation or other types of secondary glaucoma should be considered after blunt ocular trauma.

Keywords: pupillary block, secondary glaucoma, vitrectomy
