Hyphema indicates the blood within the front area of the eye, caused by eye trauma. Other causes of bleeding into the front chamber of the eye include cancer of the eye, abnormality of the blood vessel and severe inflammation of the iris. Some of the common symptoms of hyphema include bleeding in the front portion of the eye, light sensitivity, eye pain and vision abnormalities. It is generally diagnosed through eye examination, ultrasound testing, and intraocular pressure measurement (called tonometry). In certain mild cases, there is no treatment required and the blood gets absorbed within a few days. Proper rest, eye patching, sedation for decrease in recurrent bleeding, and eye drops for reduced inflammation are recommended.
