Answer

Despite clearing the hyphema, IOP may remain high.

In these cases, perform serial gonioscopic examinations to detect angle recession, synechia, and sustained blood clot.

Treat the appearance of the optic nerve and visual field.

Vitreous hemorrhage and retinal breaks might complicate a case even if the hyphema clears.
