Eye injury includes wide variety of ocular pathology. It is imperative to see an eye specialist in case of any trauma to the eye. Injury, unlike disease, presents multiple challenges to the surgeon. The injury could involve level of tissue or combination of tissues in the eye.
No two eye injuries are similar in nature. Extent of the eye injury is often obscured by disruption of the clarity of cornea, swelling of eyelids, blood in the back or front, etc. Obscuring of the trauma may have an underlying retinal detachment, lens displacement, foreign objects, or even more damage.
Ocular trauma is considered as one of the most complex and challenging areas for a retinal surgeon. From the onset of practice in 1982, ocular trauma has gained special attention in terms of research as well as restorative surgery.
