A two year survey of ophthalmic traumas in the Maltese Islands, 1986-87

By Mario R. Bonnici


Many are the ophthalmic injuries seen daily at the ophthalmic department at St. Luke’s Hospital. The majority are of a minor nature and are treated on an out-patient basis. This is a retrospective survey of ophthalmic traumas of a serious nature occurring during the years 1986/1987. All the case required admission to hospital. The criteria used are various. Since this is a retrospective study no standardised format for data collection was used. There were 110 cases of which 94 were males and 16 females. The aim of the article is not to present the mode of treatment of these cases but to enlighten on the types of injures encountered and their causation
