Posterior segment trauma

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Mechanical ocular trauma involving the posterior segment may result in damage to the choroid, vitreous body, retina, macula, and optic nerve, leading to permanent visual impairment or severe visual loss. Complicated cases such as traumatic choroidal hemorrhage, retinal detachment, traumatic macular hole, retinal detachments, and intraocular foreign bodies often bring great challenges to clinicians. Vitreoretinal surgery is usually required in the acute and secondary management of the posterior ocular trauma.
