  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 46 eyes in 44 cases of open eye injury regarding the final visual outcome. All the eyes had open injury in the cornea or the sclera with lesions in the vitreous or the retina. The series comprised 24 eyes of perforating injury, 10 eyes of eyeglobe rupture due to blunt trauma, and 12 unclassified eyes. Final corrected visual acuity of 20/200 or better was attained in 19 eyes (83%) of perforating injury and in 3 (30%) of eyeglobe rupture. All these eyes had no expulsion of the lens. The findings show that the visual outcome in open eye injury is determined by the initial force of trauma and by the state of involvement of the lens.
