We observed 46 cases of penetrating eye lesions during a 3-year-period. All were unilaterally injured. There were 16 cases due to power mowers. The injury occurred from May to July in 11 cases (69%) . The eye injury was minimum and necessitated no suture in 7 cases (43%) .Intraocular foreign body was present in 10 eyes (63%) and was 5 mm or less in diameter in all the cases. Improvement in visual acuity by 2 lines or more was obtained in 11 of the 16 eyes (69%).
