Case 47: Zone I/II Open Globe Repair with Post-Operative Elevated Intraocular Pressure
A 58-year-old man presented with a Zone I-II open globe injury of the left eye with associated lens dislocation from blunt trauma from a screwdriver. The patient underwent repair of his open globe injury followed by a subsequent pars plana lensectomy and vitrectomy for a posteriorly dislocated lens. His post-operative course was complicated by elevated intraocular pressure from mixed mechanism glaucoma. He was medically managed with a good response. It is important to monitor intraocular pressure (IOP) post-operatively after open globe repair since there are a number of different mechanisms that increase a patient’s risk of glaucoma after ocular trauma.
