We present the case of a patient who presented to the Emergency Department with Posner-Schlossman syndrome, also known as glaucomatocyclitic crisis. While this condition is uncommon, it is essential that physicians be aware of its characteristics and how to treat it, otherwise affected patients are at risk of developing permanent complications such as optic nerve atrophy and loss of vision.
