Prevalence of ocular trauma in battlefield injury has increased significantly in recent years. The majority of such injuries are due to improvised explosive devices. While impactinduced injuries are relatively well characterized, little is known regarding the effects of primary blast. We exposed porcine eyes to a simulated blast using a shock tube to correlate the blast overpressure with various trauma manifestations.
