Abstract

Ocular hypertension and glaucoma can occur after blunt trauma to the eye. Careful gonioscopic examination of the anterior chamber angle will reveal angle recession with widened ciliary body.

We describe three cases of blunt trauma to the eye resulting in raised intraocular pressure (IOP)with and without damage to the optic disc. Two of these patients with high IOP were controlled medically while third patient required surgical intervention. The risk of high IOP after trauma can occur earlier or in the later part of the life. Patients with history of blunt injury to the eye should therefore be educated and counselled to get their eyes periodically examined for an early diagnosis of increased IOP
