Purpose :To evaluate incidence of secondary glaucoma in post traumatic cases and correlates with the type of injury Materials & Methodology The Data was obtained from the records of 140 patient and reviewed and analysed from apr-2011 – December 2013.Results :The 32 months incidence of developing posttraumatic glaucoma was 11.39%.Need for glaucoma surgery was independtly associated withAngle+ iris injury (46 cases , 32.85%)Corneal + iris injury (15 cases , 10.71%)Lens injury (56 cases , 40%)Angle recession (21 cases,15%)Presence of optic atrophy (16 cases , 11.42%)H/o penetrating trauma(17 cases , 12.14%)Vitreal injury 7 cases ( 5% )Conclusions :This study estimates incidence 11.36% for the developing secondary glaucoma after ocular trauma associated with closed globed injury , blunt trauma. This study provides an estimate for the risk of developing glaucoma after ocular contusion in a large cohort study population and has determined several independently predictive factors that were significantly associated with development of posttraumatic glaucoma. These included poor visual acuity, advancing age , lens injury, angle recession and hyphema.
