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 impact-induced 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.
