Partial hyphemas were created in corticosteroid-treated and untreated rabbit eyes. The disappearance of hyphema was complete within 48 hours in control animals. Resorption was delayed for 2 to 5 days in treated eyes. Pretreatment with corticosteroids was necessary for the altered resorption rate. Tonograms demonstrated no significant difference between the two groups. Systemic chloroquine teas found to have a similar effect to steroids. Possible mechanisms for the above findings are discussed.
