Abstract

Blindness is a rare but devastating complication of cosmetic filler injection. A primary cause of blindness following hyaluronic acid filler injection is retrograde intravascular embolization into the small ocular arteries. We here report a case of temporary blindness associated with the injection of hyaluronic acid filler into the anterior chamber of eye. This is the first report of temporary blindness after cosmetic filler injection into the anterior chamber, and the first described case that recovered completely after the filler was removed. This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article. For a full description of these Evidence-Based Medicine ratings, please refer to the Table of Contents or the online Instructions to Authors www.springer.com/00266 .

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 April 2016.
All research outputs
#6,869,729
of 12,219,921 outputs
Outputs from Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
#380
of 718 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#98,875
of 220,183 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
#11
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,219,921 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 718 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 220,183 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 53% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
