A 28-year-old young man presented with sudden and severe visual loss in the left eye, starting three days ago following blunt head
trauma from a closed fist. Vision was not improved to better than 0.4 in the left eye. Slit lamp examinations revealed asymmetric
anterior chamber depth (ACD) with shallow ACD in the left eye. The key learning in this report is the use of anterior segment
optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) to better document the anterior segment changes following the blunt trauma. AS-OCT
was used to visualize the forward displacement of the iris-crystalline lens diaphragm secondary to ciliary body anterior rotation
and ciliochoroidal effusion. There was a temporary myopic shift about 7.00D which resolved after 15 days.
