          The purpose of this study was to devise a simple and reliable method of accurately measuring hyphema in the anterior chamber. Simple measurements of specific ocular characteristics, namely the corneal diameter and the vertical height of the blood column, are all that is required. Reference tables were generated to determine the amount of blood in the anterior chamber, and the percentage of volume occupied by blood.
