1.  All of the following are evidence of traumatic glaucoma except:   
 

a. widened ciliary body band on gonioscopy
b. torn iris processes
c. angle asymmetry with a deeper anterior chamber angle in the traumatized eye
d.  thinned sclera

2.  Gonioscopy should be performed on patients with traumatic hyphemas: 
 

a. immediately, at the time of injury to identify the source of bleeding and potentially use a laser to stop the bleeding
b. once the hyphema has cleared (usually after 1 week) so the angle structures are visible
c. 6-8 weeks after the injury
d.  at least 1 year after the initial injury as it usually takes 2-3 years after an injury for angle recession to be visualized
