Angle Recession with Iridodialysis

This young patient was hit with a BB pellet in a glancing blow that did not penetrate the eye or orbit. He presented with a count fingers vision and an intraocular pressure of 9 mmHg. He has an iridodialysis with angle recession. There is an area at 7 o’clock that looks like a cyclodialysis cleft. This patient’s low pressure resolved spontaneously and his vision returned to normal.
