Our eyes are extremely vulnerable to explosion injuries, and studies indicate that explosions cause eye injuries in approximately 28% of blast survivors. In most cases, we find that eye injuries are caused, not by the initial blast wave, but by the debris and fragments catapulted by the explosion or from structural collapse caused by the explosion.
The most common causes of eye injuries in an explosion include:
Even though most injuries to the eye are caused by debris, the blast itself can cause damage to the optic nerve in a person’s eye. The optic nerve transmits information from the eye to the brain. Studies of military blast injury victims have shown that even low-pressure blasts can cause these injuries and lead to visual deficits for victims.
