We evaluated the epidemiology, visual outcome, and clinical characteristics of serious eye injuries and identified preventable risk factors. We concluded that many accidents and their resulting injuries were preventable by education, greater intensive care and workplace safety. Perforating ocular injuries in rural environment are still a big therapeutic, social and economic problem.
