Ocular chemical Injury comprises about 8-18% of overall ocular trauma. It is caused by acids and alkalis. Acids cause comparatively lesser severity of burns than alkalis because acids denature the proteins and form a protective layer over the ocular surface. Whereas alkalis penetrate deep and cause severe injury. People of all age group and either gender can be affected, but it is more common in age group of 20-40 years. Ocular chemical injury is the true ocular emergency and requires immediate intervention. It can cause a significant visual impairment in younger economically productive age group. Hence, it is necessary to evaluate the damages caused by it with optimal intervention to restore vision. This study enables the analysis of current management of ocular chemical injury and its effect on the visual outcomes of the patients.
