Purpose:To evaluate the visual outcome of penetrating ocular injuries. Cases:This retrospective study was made on 37 cases of penetrating ocular injury during the past 3-year period. All were unilaterally involved. The series comprised rupture of eyeglobe 14 eyes,corneoscleral rupture 18 eyes,and intraocular foreign body 5 eyes. Findings:Visual outcome was generally poor in rupture of eyeglobe and was fair in corneoscleral rupture. Visual outcome was better in injury of anterior segment than that in posterior segment. Visual outcome was poor in rupture of eyeglobe extending posterior to the insertion of rectus muscles. Conclusion:Location of the wound is one of decisive factors for visual outcome in pentrating ocular injuries.
