In Reply.—  I believe that Dr Kershner's letter is constructive and informative.As Dr Kershner states, "The treatment of traumatic hyphema has always been controversial," and my response was our approach by many in this area. We have had excellent results and therefore continue to treat our patients in this way.There has been a host of reports, some confirming and some contradicting the use of steroids in traumatic hyphema. In our hands, it works well.
