Abstract

PURPOSE:

To describe two patients with acute angle closure glaucoma after oculoplastic surgery.

DESIGN:

Interventional case reports.

METHODS:

Review of clinical findings and treatment.

RESULTS:

A 61-year-old female developed a painful eye with decreased visual acuity a few days after bilateral blepharoplasty. A 69-year-old male developed a painful red eye with decreased visual acuity a few days after ptosis correction. In both cases the intraocular pressure increased to more than 50 mmHg. Both patients were diagnosed with acute angle closure glaucoma and treated appropriately.

CONCLUSIONS:

Acute angle closure glaucoma is a possible complication of oculoplastic surgery.
