Domestic ocular injuries are mostly caused by sharp objects such as needles or fists, balls, firecrackers, and bursting bottles; pressure cooker explosions constitute a relatively rare but largely under-reported cause of ocular trauma. We report here a domestic cooker blast injury in a 57-year-old lady who had an impacted nozzle and auto-eviscerated eyeball at the presentation that lead to permanent blindness. A careful evaluation and meticulous removal of the impacted foreign body (cooker whistle) prevented further damage to the surrounding structures. Pressure cookers are one of the most common kitchen appliances that need to be used with care and caution. We recommend stringent testing of the final product and complete adherence to the safety instructions on part of the users.
