Answer

Standard activity restrictions should be put in place for patients who develop spontaneous hyphema. These restrictions generally include bed rest with bathroom privileges and elevation of the head of the bed 30° from the horizontal.

Small children should have a protective shield over the eye at all times to prevent rubbing.

Eye protection, especially during sports, should be prescribed for older children who have known ocular tumors.
