Ocular trauma is a main cause of ocular comorbidity worldwide. Cornea or lens injury, secondary glaucoma, vitreous haemorrhage, retinal or choroidal detachment, and endophthalmitis are the sequelae of ocular injury causing vision loss. Many articles have been published identifying the common sequelae of closed-globe injuries, including the risk of developing secondary glaucoma from angle recession. This review article aims to cover the sequelae of closed globe ocular trauma, the definition of traumatic angle-recession glaucoma (TARG), and the natural course, detection, management, and prophylactic treatment of TARG.
