Temporary Blindness After an Anterior Chamber Cosmetic Filler Injection
- 592 Downloads
Blindness is a rare but devastating complication of cosmetic filler injection. A primary cause of blindness following hyaluronic acid filler injection is retrograde intravascular embolization into the small ocular arteries. We here report a case of temporary blindness associated with the injection of hyaluronic acid filler into the anterior chamber of eye. This is the first report of temporary blindness after cosmetic filler injection into the anterior chamber, and the first described case that recovered completely after the filler was removed.
