Abstract

Seven cases of retinal detachment due to firecracker injury are reported. Most involved young boys. Associated anterior segment changes as well as the nature of the retinal breaks attested to the similarity between firecracker injuries and blunt contusion injuries. Despite successful retinal reattachment in all cases, visual results were poor. To prevent visual loss from firecracker injury, educational programs directed to school age boys seem needed.
