Abstract

Trans-scleral cryopexy (TSC) was carried out in 81 eyes with recurrent hemophthalmos of diabetic genesis. 73 patients were followed up after surgery for a period of 3 months to 5 years. Hemophthalmos resolved in 80 percent of eyes (completely in 60, partially in 20 percent). The condition recurred in 10 percent of eyes, detachment of the retina developed in 13, neovascular glaucoma in 4 percent, and cataract progressed in 10 percent of eyes. Vision acuity improved in 36 percent of eyes; the best results were observed in type II diabetes mellitus. TSC proved to be an effective method for the management of hemophthalmos of diabetic nature.
