Ocular Trauma Treatment Guideline
The classification of ocular trauma is fundamental for the communication between ophthalmologists and better management of the patient. This chapter will be guided by the Birmingham Eye Trauma Terminology System (BETTS), adopted by the International Society of Ocular Trauma (Kuhn et al. 1996) (Table 2.1). The visual prognosis can be estimated through a score created from the analysis of a broad database called Ocular Trauma Score (Unver et al. 2009; Kuhn et al. 2002) (Tables 2.2 and 2.3).
