We evaluated utility of Bscan for rapid and accurate diagnosis of ocular pathologies in trauma cases. After due permission from the ethical committee a retrospective cohort analysis was done on 87 patients of ocular trauma presenting between June 2018 to June 2019. Patient's primary history documented and ophthalmic examination with torchlight, Snellen's visual acuity chart, slit lamp biomicroscope and fundus evaluation done. Later B scan was done by closed eye technique with 9MHz probe of Toshiba Aplio 400 ultrasound machine. Young males between 18-40 age group with low socioeconomic strata were more affected. Total traumatic cataract seen in 6 cases. Retinal pathology like vitreous hemorrhage (28 cases), retinal detachment (17cases) seen. Ophthalmic ultrasound is an effective, non- invasive and essential guide for early and accurate diagnosis in ocular injury with hazy media. It helps in further management and can prevent potential blindness.
