Corneal blood staining after complicated cataract surgery
Corneal blood staining is a severe ophthalmic complication that usually occurs as a result of long-standing hyphema with increased intraocular pressure (IOP). A pressure > 25 mm Hg for > 5 days may cause corneal staining. The present case has been reported in the journal Case reports in Ophthalmology.

A 68-year-old woman developed corneal blood staining secondary to hyphema after cataract surgery, despite the fact that intraocular pressure was not increased for a prolonged time. The corneal staining spontaneously cleared from the periphery towards the center. It was fully resolved after 2.5 years of follow-up.

Major takeaway:-
In case of hyphema induced by cataract surgery, a performance of early anterior chamber washout should be considered to prevent corneal blood staining and poor visual outcome.
