ABSTRACT

Traumatic events that happen in the retina present a challenging scenario. A case where a spring hitting the eye caused a coup contre coup effect on the macula: subretinal bleed, macular Edema and vitreous reaction in an intact eye. Vision was down to counting fingers upon first consultation, in succeeding weeks, vision started to improve such that by one month, vision was back to 20/20. Treatment was medical as well as laser. I usually do a step by step approach in trauma cases wherein the globe is intact. Understanding the retinal layers affected by trauma with the use of fluorescing angiography and OCT greatly helped in starting treatment with the right medicines. Understanding of the basics of pharmacology of the drugs used in the treatment of the retinal trauma resulted to bring out improvements in vision.
