A mechanistic approach to ocular trauma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Our understanding of the mechanisms of injury resulting from ocular trauma has increased substantially in the past century. Paramount to this understanding has been the careful review of case series, clinicopathologic correlation, and the development of animal models of ocular injury. This article reviews in detail the many mechanisms of injury that are set into motion by blunt and penetrating forces. With better understanding of the mechanisms of injury, improvements in treatment and prevention should follow.
