Ocular dog bite injuries are reported mostly in children and are commonly associated with severe adnexal injuries. We studied six ocular dog bite injuries that presented in the emergency unit of a tertiary institute within six hours of injury between April 2021 and March 2022. All patients had lid laceration and one case had canalicular tear with severe tissue loss in the lower lid. Wound apposition was done with loose sutures on skin and minimal trauma to tissues. Wound healing was good in all cases. This approach of lid injury repair helps to reduce chances of infection while achieving good cosmesis.
