Abstract

Principles of surgical management of posterior segment penetrating injuries are based on an understanding of the pathophysiology of secondary intraocular complications. Penetrating injuries cause varying amounts of initial mechanical damage, and this damage may be so severe that the eye cannot be salvaged. In other cases loss of vision is due mainly to secondary pathologic processes.
