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.
