Conclusions

Corneal lacerations and perforations are important injuries that represent a significant percentage of ocular trauma cases. Management of these injuries requires rapid diagnosis and depending on the size of the wound, either medical or surgical treatment. Wound closure in a timely manner with restoration of original anatomic relationships provides patients the best chance to regain optimal visual function.
