Hyphema (Bleeding in Eye) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
A person with a hyphema may have had a recent incident of eye trauma, might feel pain in the injured eye, and may have blurred vision.
If the hyphema is large, the eye itself may look as if it is filled with blood. Smaller hyphemas are not readily visible to the naked eye. Extremely large hyphemas filling the entire anterior chamber appear dark red and have been called "eight ball" hyphemas.
