Of 95 cases of perforating eye injury during the 4-year period 1973 to 1976 reviewed, 21 had a retained intraocular foreign body. Sporting activities, including shotgun injuries, were found to be the cause in a significant number of cases. Four cases of perforating injury due to car battery explosions are also reported. None in the series was found to have sympathetic ophthalmitis.
