Lens: traumatic luxation

icanis

Introduction

  • Lesser trauma: if pre-existing subluxation due to zonular degeneration.
  • Greater trauma: normal globe → greater likelihood of concurrent damage, eg uveitis, hyphema, retinal detachment, splits in ocular coats (cornea or sclera) → diagnosis difficult.
  • Diagnosis: use ultrasound to locate position of lens. Assess eye for iridodonesis.
  • Treatment: as for uveitis Uveitis. Consider lens extraction only if anterior luxation and vision are present.
