    Is it possible to have Hypophema and a subconjunctival hemorrhage? Like to have pooling of blood all the way across the eye, and not just in compartments? I appreciate the help in advance!

    Yes. Both subconj heme and hyphema can show up secondary to trauma.

    Hyphema usually takes a pretty good shot to the eye to cause & should be followed closely.

    Subconj heme can come from things as benign as a cough, bowel-movement, or lifting weights.
