Lawn mower injuries as a cause of serious visual acuity impairment - Case reports.

Abstract [b]Abstract Objective.[/b] The aim of the study is to present four cases of lawn mowers injuries as a cause of serious visual acuity impairment. [b]Materials and Method[/b]. A retrospective study of four patients admitted in 2013-2015 to the Department of Vitreoretinal Surgery in Lublin with severe open or closed globe injury, one with an intraocular foreign body (IOFB). The presence of eye protective equipment was assessed, as well as visual acuity, eye tissue condition before and after treatment, and applied therapy.

AB  - [b]Abstract Objective.[/b] The aim of the study is to present four cases of lawn 
      mowers injuries as a cause of serious visual acuity impairment. [b]Materials and 
      Method[/b]. A retrospective study of four patients admitted in 2013-2015 to the
      Department of Vitreoretinal Surgery in Lublin with severe open or closed globe
      injury, one with an intraocular foreign body (IOFB). The presence of eye
      protective equipment was assessed, as well as visual acuity, eye tissue condition
      before and after treatment, and applied therapy. RESULTS: In all cases an
      improvement was achieved in local conditions. The intraocular foreign body was
      removed, wounds sutured and damaged tissues placed in position. All eyeballs were
      saved. In three cases, visual acuity was improved to a usable level. Three
      patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy, one with IOFB removal from the vitreous
      cavity. [b]Conclusions[/b]. Lawn mower induced eye injuries are a significant
      cause of serious visual acuity impairment or blindness. The presented study shows
      that lawn mower eye injuries are still a therapeutic, social and economic
      problem, yet are very preventable with proper eye protection and patients'
      education. Current prevention strategies are inadequate, and therefore should be 
      updated.
