Angle recession and cyclodialysis after blunt trauma
Contributor: Jesse Vislisel, MDCategory: Glaucoma
This patient developed angle recession glaucoma after racketball impact to the eye.
Angle recession results from separation of the longitudinal and circular muscles of the ciliary body.
Note the broad band of visible ciliary body face on this gonioscopic image. Interestingly, he also has a cyclodialysis cleft, or separation of ciliary body from the scleral spur. This appears as a broad white band at the junction of the ciliary body and scleral spur.
