Trauma is a major predisposing factor in ocular infections. Maintaining a high index of clinical suspicion based on the circumstances of injury is critical to allow prompt recognition, immediate diagnostic investigation, and initiation of broad spectrum antimicrobial therapy without delay. Optimal management strategies for traumatic endophthalmitis, keratitis, and periocular infections are discussed with particular emphasis on incidence, clinical features, diagnostic techniques, causative organisms, and specific therapy.
