Abstract: Study of visual outcome after management of traumatic eye injuries. Purpose to determine the mode of injury and the factors affecting visual outcome after management of traumatic eye injuries, to determine preventive measures to avoid the injuries. Materials and Methods A prospective observational study was carried out on 250 patients presented following ocular trauma. A detailed history taking, anterior and posterior segment examination, baseline investigations and assessment of visual acuity were done at time of presentation, after medical and/or surgical treatment, after 1week, 1 month, 2 months and 3 months of follow ups respectively. Results mean age was 32.9 years with male preponderance (70 %) occupationally working group (21-60 years) lost total 1619 days and school going children (6-18 years) lost total 488 days of quality life following ocular trauma. Major incidence was occupational (48.4 %) injuries. Firecrackers, vegetative material and metallic objects were most common inflicting materials. Out of 250, 171 patients presented before 24 hours of ocular trauma, out of which, 85 % had better final visual outcome.78 cases required secondary treatment for better vision and 20 patients ended up with complications and poor visual outcome. Conclusion early presentation and management following ocular trauma is beneficial for better visual outcome. Preventive measures at working places, home and during festivals (e. g. bystanders) are necessary to prevent the ocular trauma.
