|Abstract:||Penetrating injuries to the orbit are uncommon but may have catastrophic consequences ranging from blindness, cerebral damage to death. Apparently similar injuries but with a slight difference in the anatomic pathway may have minimal morbidity. Prevention by the use of full safety equipment is recommended. This case report shows that full safety equipment may not prevent injury|
