Relatively mild ocular trauma may cause lesions within the anterior chamber which are easily overlooked. The frequent onset of secondary glaucoma after such injuries emphasizes the importance of carefully evaluating the anterior chamber for the presence of hyphema, iridodialysis, and anterior-chamber recession.
