Severe surfing-related ocular injuries: the Stanford Northern Californian experience BRITISH JOURNAL OF SPORTS MEDICINE Zoumalan, C. I., Blumenkranz, M. S., McCulley, T. J., Moshfeghi, D. M. 2008; 42 (10): 855-857


There is a growing body of literature describing severe surfing-related ocular injuries that result in permanent vision loss. We describe three severe surfing-related ocular injuries that occurred on beaches in northern California. One particular case stresses the need to tailor treatment to the patient and injury because of the possibility of good outcomes despite severe injury. Attention should also be directed towards commercially available safety gear and providing additional safety measures to prevent other orbital and ocular injuries.
