Ocular trauma is an important cause of unilateral vision loss worldwide. In cases of perforating corneal injuries, immediate surgical intervention is imperative to prevent endophthalmitis; however, in cases of partial-thickness corneal tears, conservative management usually suffices. However, intervention in the form of compression sutures may be required later for astigmatism that may arise.
