  1. Closed injury
    ocular wall intact by intraocular damage
  2. Contusion?
    • closed wound caused by blunt trauma
    • injury direct/2ndy to shape of globes
  3. Open injury?

    • possible retention of intraocular fb
  7. Perforation?
    penetrating injury with entry and exit wound
  8. Blunt trauma?
    • ant/post compression of equatorial expansion
    • majority of impact absorbed by lens-iris-vitreous
    • transmission of force to post- manifestations
  9. Anterior segment manifestations?
    • ciliary shock
    • lens: subluxation
    • globe rupture
    • cornea: abrasion, edema hyphaema
    • iris: vossius ring, traumatic mydriasis, iridodialysis
  10. Traumatic iritis?
    • moderate blunt injury
    • photophobia
    • lid bruising/edema
    • subconj haem
    • sluggish pupil
    • REFER
  11. Commotio retinae?
    • intracellular edema within PR and RPE 2nd to shock waves in vitreous
    • cloudy grey white retina- demarcated boundary
    • macula: berlin's edema
    • tx: resolves 6w
    • complications: pig degen, retinal hole
  12. Choroidal rupture?
    • tear in choroid: bruch's RPE
    • obscured by haem
    • white-yellow crescen shaped vertical streak
    • sight threatening
    • FA
  13. Retinal breaks
    • predispose RD
    • dilated fundus exam
  14. Traumatic optic neuropathy?

    • atrophy over weeks
    • VA and RAPD
    • cause: compression from haematoma/fb
    • deceleration injury
  15. Optic nerve avulsion?
    • nerve tears at lamina cribosa- sudden rotation of globe
    • raised iop or sudden retroplusion
    • tx: not possible
  16. inflammatory fb reaction?
    • severe: iron-retinopathy/cataracts/glau, coper- retinopathy/golden plaques/sunflower cataract
    • mild: nickel, al, hg, zn, grass

    • head trauma+compressive injury to trunk
    • sx: CWS, haem ON, opacification of retina, Roth's spot
  18. Terson's retinopathy?
    • subarachnoid haem
    • blood between ILM and retina- may perforate vitreous
    • sudden rise in ICP
    • HA, Papilloedema and vomitings
  19. Valsalva retinopathy?
    • sudden increase in intraab/thoraic pressure-> IO venous pressure-> rupture of caps
    • vit/intraret haem
    • trivial: lifiting, straining, coughing, vomting

    • pain, diplopia, edema, enophthalmos
    • tx: antibiotics, steroids, nasal decongestants
    • aim to prevent perm diplopia
