As you know, the iris and ciliary body are the middle part of the eyeball, continue with the cornea, and extend to the sclera, uvea, and retina. Traumatic injuries of the iris and ciliary body are usually caused by blunt eye injury but can result from any other type of injury, like firecrackers, pellet gun projectile, electric shock from Taser, fishing hook weight, motor vehicle accidents, batteries, water balloon slingshots, as well as many others. These injuries include hyphema, iridodialysis, and so on.
