BOSTON — Patients with low visual acuity at presentation for a traumatic eye injury tended to have worse vision at final follow-up and a higher risk for enucleation, according to a poster presented here at the American Society of Retina Specialists meeting. Sami H. Uwaydat, MD, and colleagues presented the findings of a retrospective chart review of 87 eyes with globe injuries between 2009 and 2015. At presentation, 11.49% of these eyes had no light perception (NLP), and 10.34% of eyes were eventually enucleated.
