  • Look Inside

A 64-year-old male underwent bilateral cataract surgery by phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implanta-tion under peribulbar anesthesia. He had been suffering from diabetes mellitus and alcoholic liver dysfunction. Spontaneous hemorrhage developed in the right orbit six days after surgery. It extended into the right eyelid and the cheek associated with orbital hematoma inferior to the eyeball. The eyeball was dislocated upwards with restricted upgaze. Funduscopy showed prepapillary hemorrhage. The corrected visual acuity was 0.03. Conservative treatments resulted in disappearance of hematoma 7 months after surgery. The eye movement became normal and the corrected visual acuity recovered to 0.7.
