Abstract

We reviewed 10 eyes of 10 cases of eyeball rupture due to blunt trauma seen by us during the past 3 years regarding the visual outcome. Final visual acuity of 0.02 or over was achieved in 4 eyes. The visual outcome was related to the location and extent of eyeball rupture. Fair visual outcome resulted when the rupture was located near the sclerocorneal limbus and when it was less than one quadrant in extent.
