Retinal contusion is a leading cause of visual loss in ocular blunt trauma. However, its pathogenesis remains controversial. We established a rabbit model of severe retinal contusion with energy of about 2.87 J. Typical retinal edema and sometimes subretinal hemorrhage reproducibly occurred at the posterior pole after injury. These subsided 1 week later with depigmentation in the lesion. Histopathological examination revealed severe damage of the outer layer of retina, for example, disruption… CONTINUE READING
