A member asked:

I got a hyphema, could it result in permanent partial vision loss in that eye?

Possibly: A hyphema usually is resorbed without permanent vision loss. However, if the blood stains the cornea, or the pressure inside the eye increases without appropriate treatment, permanent vision loss can result.

Possibly: A hyphema is the presence of suspended or layered red blood in the eye, most often due to injury. Certainly, an injury can cause temporary or permanent vision loss. The hyphema resulting from injury can cause glaucoma and staining of normally clear parts of the eye such as the cornea and lens. If not timely treated and resolved quickly, temporary or permanent vision loss can result.
