A 22-year-old male presented with a history of blunt trauma to the left eye that was not treated. This was accompanied by a gradual reduction of vision in the left eye. Intraocular pressure was slightly elevated in the left eye, but the patient was “squeezing”. Vision with best correction was OD 20/20 and OS 20/60. Refraction was OD Plano and OS – 4.50 + 150 X 20, but the man did not wear glasses. The treating doctor has a question about a glaucomatous cup in the left eye from traumatic glaucoma.

1. The optic nerve of the left eye seen above is:

a. typical for glaucoma
b. normal
c. characteristic of a colobomatous disc
d. likely to occur over a short time with elevated pressure
e. none of the above

2. The reduction in visual acuity:

a. is not likely to have occurred in three weeks
b. could be due to the coloboma
c. is likely to be an example of amblyopia
d. could be related to anisometropia
e. all of the above

3. The most likely treatment would be:
a. wear safety glasses
b. follow up with no specific treatment
