Lens particle glaucoma after penetrating ocular trauma is secondary to lens capsular rupture by a sharp element. The resulting glaucoma depends on the amount of lens fragments released into the anterior chamber, the inflammatory response, and the ability of the trabecular meshwork to clear the material. The purpose of this article is to report a lens particle glaucoma case of a patient with 3-months history of penetrating eye injury. Although the medical treatment for glaucoma and inflammation should be established initially in this entity, the definitive treatment is by means of the extraction of the lens and its fragments. When patients delays in attending, peripheral anterior synechiae and serious glaucomatous damage may be found. If significative goniosynechiae develop, a filtering surgery may be required. In this case, ultrasound biomicroscopy served as a complementary aid to diagnosis and surgical plan.
