The Importance of Anterior Segment Reconstruction after Severe Bilateral Open Globe Injury for Visual Acuity Outcome – Case Report

One of the most common causes of vision loss and blindness is open globe injury. Initial visual acuity, the presence of a relative afferent pupillary deficit, the mechanism and degree of the injury, the involvement of ocular structures, and proper, timely diagnosis and treatment all play a role in achieving functional visual acuity.

We present the case of a 48-year-old man who suffered bilateral open globe injury to demonstrate that poor initial visual acuity does not rule out useful acuity in the long run. In our situation, the severity of the trauma and poor visual acuity were both negative prognostic variables for the outcome of visual acuity. We have seen a considerable increase in visual acuity after a long-term follow-up with subsequent surgery procedures in both eyes.
