  1. Penetrating eye injury from a metal wedge.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors describe a patient with a penetrating ocular injury from a metal wedge, a common hand tool used by road service technicians for the purpose of opening a locked car door.

    The patient had a penetrating eye injury from a metal wedge when its sharp end released from a car door lock and retracted upward, striking the right eye.

    No report exists of ocular injury using a metal wedge for its intended purpose of opening a car door lock.

    The use of polycarbonate lenses might afford some protection.
