Trauma Iatrogenic

Figure 2.1. The ocular photograph on the left shows acute linear corneal edema which is transient but is usually associated with permanent corneal damage. The ocular photograph on the right shows the same eye, 2 weeks later, with breaks in Descemet's layer of the cornea which marks the axis of severe myopic astigmatism.

Figure 2.2. On the left is a mark on the face, directly over the eye, indicating the exact location that forceps were applied. On the right, the eyelids have been opened to reveal a partial hyphema caused by damage to the root of the iris, which resolved without any treatment or permanent ocular damage. The blood is in the anterior chamber of the eye, between the posterior corneal surface and the anterior iris surface. Blood in the anterior chamber of a neonate usually resolves rapidly without any treatment.
