Ruptured Globe

TA is a 21-year-old man who was hit in the right eye with a racquetball. He had taken his protective goggles off because they had fogged up and were interfering with his game. He noted the immediate onset of severe pain and rapid reduction in his vision. He presented at the hospital emergency room within an hour and the ophthalmologist was called in for a consultation. He noted vision in that eye of hand motions at 1 m, intraocular pressure of 25 mm, a total eight-ball hyphema in the anterior chamber, and no view of the fundus.
