Abstract

Injuries to the face and ocular structures could occur at the war front not only to the enemies, but also to unsuspecting friends of the security agents. We report here a case of ocular injury involving an air force personnel (lance corporal) who was mistakenly hit on the face by the back blast of a rocket‑propelled grenade shot by a colleague without prior warning resulting in varying degrees of ocular injuries.

Key words: Blast, ocular injury, rocket‑propelled grenade, terrorism
