Abstract Details


We report the case of a 56-year-old patient with a history of glaucoma under treatment for 20 years, who consulted in the ophthalmic emergency room for right eye trauma.


The ophthalmologic examination revealed in the traumatized eye visual acuity reduced to light perception, a diffuse subconjunctival hemorrhage, a corneal wound ranging from 1 to 4 hours on the limbus in the manner of an extracapsular cataract extraction.


The anterior chamber was the site of grade 4 hyphema and the fundus was inaccessible. On examination of the upper conjunctival sac, the lens was found, adhering to the bulbar conjunctiva. (Fig. 1)


We washed the hyphema and the corneal wound has been sutured.


Open-globe eye trauma is a real public health problem due to its frequency and severity. Indeed, they expose to serious complications, very often responsible for a severe visual impairment.
