Abstract

Airbags have been shown to save lives and reduce head, neck, and upper torso trauma associated with motor vehicle crashes. However, airbags have also been implicated as the source of facial and orbital injury. We report the case of a patient who suffered bilateral lenticular subluxation, anterior chamber hemorrhages, and minor facial lacerations as the result of airbag deployment.
