Reasons of Injury in this area:
WE ARE THANKFUL TO TATA SOCIAL WELFARE TRUST
Our experience in study says most of the ocular injuries in this area are done by Babool Thorns, foreign body in the eye, games like bows and arrows, during cattle care & traveling on the top of vehicle. Injury may lead to corneal tear, traumatic cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment or retained foreign body in the eye. Blindness can occur after injury which is absolutely preventable.
