PMID:  20551855     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of a blinding, perforating globe injury from Taser trauma. There have been other instances involving similar circumstances, but this traumatic event resulted in the loss of all meaningful vision and eventual enucleation. Despite meticulous planning and intervention, however, Taser trauma can result in devastating ocular injury.
