June 5, 2020 Conference


Traumatic Glaucoma

Dr. Christopher Teng, Yale Ophthalmology and Visual Science (Presenter)
The incidence of ocular trauma is around 2.5 million patients every year in the United States. The risk of developing glaucoma after penetrating injury in the United States is estimated to be 2.67% while it is 3.39% after blunt trauma. This constitutes a fair number of patients at risk for glaucoma after eye trauma. This talk will briefly review ocular trauma, and discuss various manifestations of traumatic glaucoma, such as traumatic iritis, hyphema, angle recession glaucoma, and inflammatory glaucoma. It will discuss imaging techniques such as UBM and anterior segment OCT to aide in the diagnosis of angle recession glaucoma and will show a case and video on cataract surgery in a patient with phacoantigenic glaucoma after penetrating trauma.
