Abstract

Purpose: To analyze blunt eye injuries with respect to mode of injury, sites involved and outcome. Method: This was a retrospective study of 32 patients with blunt ocular trauma from 2010 to 2012 in a tertiary care centre. Patient data, mode and extent of injury, management and outcome was noted and analyzed. Result: The commonest age of presentation was 10-20 years (28.125%) and the commonest mode of injury was road traffic accident (28.125%). The most commonly involved structure was conjunctiva (84.375%), followed by lid and adnexa (62.5%). Anterior segment involvement included corneal epithelial defect (7 cases), hyphaema (4 cases), iritis (3 cases) and anterior dislocation of lens (1 case). Posterior segment involvement included vitreous haemorrhage (1 case) and commotio retinae (2 cases). Conclusion: This study reinforces that blunt trauma can cause any extent of damage to ocular structures and the final visual outcome is dependent on the structures injured.
