Abstract

 Loss of light perception (LP) after open globe injury (OGI) does not necessarily mean the patient will have permanent complete visual loss. Findings that seem to be associated reliably with permanent profound vision loss after OGI include OPTIC NERVE AVULSION, OPTIC NERVE TRANSECTION, and profound loss of intraocular contents, which can be identified with CT/MRI imaging albeit with varying degrees of confidence. Eyes with NLP after OGI that undergo successful primary repair with intact optic nerves may be considered for additional surgery, particularly if there is: (1) recovery of LP on the first day after primary repair, (2) treatable pathology underlying NLP status (e.g., extensive CHOROIDAL HEMORRHAGE, dense vitreous and subretinal hemorrhage), (3) NLP in the fellow eye. We counsel patients that the chance of recovering ambulatory vision under these circumstances is very low (~5%).
