169 Possible Causes for Secondary Glaucoma, Unilateral Eye Pain

  • Glaucoma

    Abstract We have reviously described surgical techniues for draining severe cases of secondary glaucoma by means of an artificial implant.[] The eyes may show unilateral circumcorneal injection, conjunctival edema, a cloudy cornea, and a moderately dilated pupil that is nonreactive to light.[] Secondary glaucoma occurs due to a known cause. Both open- and closed-angle glaucoma can be secondary when caused by something known.[]

  • Eyeball Injury

    Secondary Glaucoma Secondary Glaucoma can develop after an injury to the eye.[]

  • Uveitis

    Complications may include band keratopathy, cataract, secondary glaucoma, posterior synechiae, cystoid macular edema, and hypotony.[] Symptoms [ 11 ] Acute anterior uveitis Usually unilateral. Pain, redness and photophobia are typical. Eye pain is often worse when trying to read.[] In addition, trabecular obstruction, due to either cellular debris or peripheral anterior synechiae, can lead to secondary glaucoma due to chronic angle closure.[]

  • Iritis

    Iritis, as seen in this patient, is a common form of anterior uveitis that can cause long-term debilitation, synechiae and secondary glaucoma, if left untreated.[] 2.03 Iritis (uveitis) Presentation The patient usually complains of unilateral eye pain, blurred vision and photophobia.[] , red, painful eye.[]

  • Endophthalmitis

    Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[] A 64-year-old man with type 2 diabetes mellitus and plaque psoriasis presented to the emergency room with 3 days of progressive right eye pain and decreased vision.[] CASE PRESENTATION: We report on a 62-year-old female presenting with a sterile hypopyon iritis with secondary glaucoma and an underlying rheumatoid disease.[]

  • Orbital Cellulitis

    Secondary complications such as glaucoma are treated as they arise. [3] To the best of authors’ knowledge, there has been no previously reported case of bilateral orbital[] A 29-year-old woman presented with a 6-week history of progressive, unilateral, retro-orbital and periorbital right eye pain.[] […] orbital cellulitis : Fever Extraocular muscle dysfxn Pain w/eye movement More common in ORBITAL cellulitis Can be seen in periorbital cellulitis Chemosis Much more common[]

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Peripheral iris cysts may produce angle closure and may cause secondary angle-closure glaucoma.[] Often, closed angle glaucoma presents acutely as a painful red eye. Reference: (1) European Glaucoma Society (EGS) 2008.[] At this visit, however, the patient reported an episode of unilateral left eye pain with associated blurred vision. He also stated that the pain lasted for two hours.[]

  • Retinoblastoma

    Nevertheless, a meticulous posterior segment evaluation to rule out retinoblastoma in children presenting with buphthalmos or secondary glaucoma should always be considered[] A 4-year-old girl with a history of unilateral retinoblastoma presented with a large, painful and worsening mass (about 20   23 cm) of the left side of the neck.[] […] to glaucoma, cataracts, and/or retinal detachment.[]

  • Scleritis and Episcleritis

    Complications: Scleral melt Corneal ulceration Secondary glaucoma Complicated cataract Exudative Retinal detachment (Posterior scleritis) Differential diagnosis: Other causes[] Most patients had unilateral involvement. The ocular symptoms at the initial visit were redness and ocular pain.[] Patients may suffer complications from treatment more often than disease itself, with development of cataract or secondary glaucoma from chronic corticosteroid use.[]

  • Carotid Cavernous Sinus Fistula

    A case of spontaneous carotid cavernous sinus fistula in a young adult male who presented with pulsating exophthalmos and secondary glaucoma is presented.[] A 67-year-old normotensive male presented with loss of vision, pain, and proptosis of the right eye. Best-corrected visual acuity was right eye 6/36 and left eye 6/5.[] glaucoma Diminished visual acuity, visual loss Subconjunctival hemorrhages Corneal damage Intracranial hemorrhage Otorrhagia Epistaxis Differential diagnosis Vascular pathologies[]
