Some authors applied PRP to the ciliary body to decrease the aqueous humor yield, but the incidence rate of severe hypotony or phthisis bulbi
A study of specialized schools in India reported that corneal staphyloma, scars, and phthisis bulbi
were the major causes of blindness and low vision (26.
One case of phthisis bulbi
was noted in the context of contusion injuries of long duration.

Twelve of the 34 eyes that had VA under 3/60 resulted in phthisis bulbi
, enucleation or evisceration.
Even though an irregular pupil is the only remaining sequel for many patients, serious circulation deficits can lead to outcomes as severe as phthisis bulbi
frequently culminate in loss of eye vision as a result of endophthalmitis, anterior chamber collapse and glaucoma or chronic leakage of aqueous humour, leading to atrophy of ciliary body and phthisis bulbi
6) divided Coats' disease into 5 stages ranging from mild disease with retinal telangiectasia only to severe, advanced disease with a blind, painless eye and possible cataract and phthisis bulbi
Most common cause of blindness was phthisis bulbi
accounting for 30.
Complications include secondary cataract, rubeosis iridis, uveitis, secondary glaucoma, retinal detachment and phthisis bulbi
(atrophy of non-functional eye).
We avoided performing 360-degree argon laser cyclophotocoagulation of the right eye due to the risk of phthisis bulbi
Serious complications like hypotonia and phthisis bulbi
have been reported with melphalan doses over 50 [micro]g.
