Dr. Jyoti Bhuyan, Dr. Baby Deka, Dr. Mritunjay Sharma

Aim To study the various ocular morbidities following concussion injury of the eye with respect to mode of injury, sites involved and visual outcome. Materials & Methods The present study included 105 cases of blunt ocular trauma resulting in concussion injury. A detailed history and thorough ocular examinations were done. 0ptical coherence tomography (OCT), Fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA), Computed tomography (CT-scan), Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were also done whenever required. Results Our study found that majority of cases were in the age group of 21-30 years (24.76 %). Male were affected more with male to female ratio 3.2 1. Most common mode of injury was the domestic accidents (44.7 %). Common ocular morbidities of anterior segment were corneal edema (38.09 %), hyphema (19.04 %), traumatic cataract (14.28 %) and subluxated lens (11.42 %). Common posterior segment morbidities observed were Vitreous hemorrhage (15.23 %), macular edema (7.61 %), retinal detachment (5.71 %) and traumatic optic neuropathy (6.66 %). Visual outcome at 6 weeks [according to world health organization (WHO) definition ] were (46.72 %) with normal vision, (16.82 %) with mild visual impairment, (9.34 %) with severe visual impairment, while (18.69 %) with blindness and (4.67 %) had no perception of light. Conclusion - The concussion injury of the eye is a major cause of ocular morbidities and can produce visual impairment of varying degree ranging from slight or no impairment of vision to permanent blindness. It is a complex, multi-structural involvement which requires specialized ophthalmic training to develop the expertise for corrective and reparative ocular surgeries.
