This report concerns the case of a 67-year-old male patient who underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification with implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). After an interval of 2 months the patient developed iritis together with an uncontrollable increase in intraocular pressure. After a detailed examination a dislocated haptic of the IOL was identified as the cause of the symptoms. The dislocation had led to uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome although no hemorrhage was observed. In addition to this complication the haptic had arroded the zonular complex which made implantation of an anterior chamber lens necessary. Although improvements in operating techniques, lens materials and designs have been made uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome has to be kept in mind. Surgical intervention is the only therapeutic option.

Elevated intraocular pressure is relatively common following pars plana vitrectomy and intraocular gas tamponade. We discuss a series of patients who experienced elevated intraocular pressure from pup...
Determining target intraocular pressure (IOP) in glaucoma patients is multifaceted, requiring attention to many different factors such as glaucoma type, severity of disease, age, race, family history,...
The aim of this study was to examine the recent status of intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation according to a classification system based on vertical dislocation position, as well as the surgical techni...
Posterior dislocation of the shoulder is a rare and commonly missed injury. Unilateral dislocations occur mostly due to trauma. Bilateral posterior shoulder dislocations are even more rare and result ...

Lowering intraocular pressure remains the mainstay of therapy in the management of glaucoma. The effect of ocular massage on intraocular pressure in patients with acute primary angle closu...
In the treatment of glaucoma, trabeculectomy surgery provides a drainage system for the eye and allows for the lowering of the pressure inside the eye. The flow through the surgically cre...

A form of glaucoma in which the intraocular pressure increases because the angle of the anterior chamber is blocked and the aqueous humor cannot drain from the anterior chamber.
Inflammation of the anterior uvea comprising the iris, angle structures, and the ciliary body. Manifestations of this disorder include ciliary injection, exudation into the anterior chamber, iris changes, and adhesions between the iris and lens (posterior synechiae). Intraocular pressure may be increased or reduced.
A form of GLAUCOMA in which chronic optic nerve damage and loss of vision normally attributable to buildup of intraocular pressure occurs despite prevailing conditions of normal intraocular pressure.
Devices implanted to control intraocular pressure by allowing aqueous fluid to drain from the anterior chamber. (Hoffman, Pocket Glossary of Ophthalmologic Terminology, 1989)
A breach in the continuity of the posterior chamber of the eyeball.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
