Abstract

Keywords :

I would like to thank Gurnani B for his interest in the article entitled “Patterns of Ocular Trauma Presenting to the Tertiary Eye Care Centre in the Islands of Andaman and Nicobar” In the article regarding treatment protocol I used ONTT reference with 24 hour duration, which actually was NASCISS II study protocol, with 48 hour duration. I used Birmingham eye trauma terminology for eye trauma classification and not a single case of endophthalmitis happened in this study. Anterior chamber intra ocular lens (ACIOL) was put after 2-3 weeks. As we know that Scleral fixated IOL is the best option in case of aphakia in the modern erra, still I used ACIOL because there was no scope for that. In the follow up period no complications were noticed specially corneal decompensation and glaucoma. Primary repair was done in all cases and enucleation was performed only after considering the fact that there is no chance of vision recovery.
