Steering-wheel ocular injuries

Abstract

In two instances, patients sustained orbital trauma at the time of a car accident when their faces contacted the steering-wheel, in one case despite proper seat-belt wear. In the first case the trauma resulted in lid lacerations and a blow-out orbital fracture; in the second case there was a retrobulbar hemorrhage. Steering-wheel ocular injuries have been overlooked in the past and seat-belt wear may not prevent their occurrence in certain cases.
