Traumatic Glaucoma Following Closed Globe Injury

December 22, 2008

Dr. C. Robert Bernadino has published a study demonstrating predictors for the development of traumatic glaucoma. Of note, most of these predictors are signs of significant intraocular damage, which makes sense. The one pathologic change not associated with traumatic glaucoma is cyclodialysis cleft; this may be protective against an increase of IOP. However, the authors did not comment on closure of the cleft; perhaps the risk for traumatic glaucoma would return with closure of the cleft.
