Hyphemas frequently occur as a result of trauma but may also occur as a complication of surgery and spontaneously in certain systemic and ocular conditions. Complications of hyphema include elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), corneal blood staining, and glaucoma. Management may range from simple observation, conservative therapy with topical steroid drops, and cycloplegic agents to anterior chamber washout in the operating room. Poor initial visual acuity, glaucoma, vitreous hemorrhage, and eyelid laceration are all associated with long-term poor visual outcome.Three cases of hyphema in three different eyes were treated in the office using an anterior chamber fluid-gas exchange technique.
