Cyclodialysis-Cleft (2)

This 18 year-old woman was struck by a water balloon in her left eye. She presented with count fingers vision and an intraocular pressure of 4 mmHg. She had a 30% hyphema. After a period of hypotony her intraocular pressure gradually returned to a normal level without intervention. This video was taken five months after her injury and shows a cyclodialysis cleft that has healed on its own.
