Eye trauma is when the eye receives a direct or close blunt to the eye. When the eye receives a blow, it can cause blood to collect underneath the hit area, which leads to many of the mutual symptoms of eye trauma. (Bausch, Lomb,2020) Some of these symptoms can be itching, pain irritation, as well as redness. (Bausch and Lomb,2020) Every single eye trauma incident could present differently but with similar signs and symptoms. The initial approach to eye injury, must involve careful triage. (Uptodate,2020) Eye injuries are extremely fragile, and it is imperative emergent eye injuries are recognized at a glance and evaluated. Questions regarding the injury will be beneficial to complete the assessment. How the injury happened? How long ago did the injury occur. When did the pain start in the eye? Management of an injured eye requires meticulous history taking, evaluation of vision that measures the acuity and if there is a relative pupillary defect as well as careful inspection of the eyes, under anesthetic if necessary. (Scott,2011) The moment life-threatening injuries eliminated treated, the emergency clinician should identify threats to vision using a focused history and an organized approach. (Gardiner,2020)
