A study of 134 cases of anterior segment ocular trauma [ASOT] , shows that ASOT forms a considerable part of eye injuries in Rawalpindi division and Azad Kashmir. Males are more commonly affected.
Children under the age of 15 years are more prone to injury. Most of the injuries occurred during sports. Modern surgical procedures have significantly improved the functional outcome. Intra ocular lens implantation and keratoplasty have greatly reduced the effects of post traumatic complications. Preventive measures, public education and necessary legislation will decrease the incidence of ASOT
