Purpose: To describe presentation and management of ocular trauma in a series of 6 young patients (10 - 40 years of age).

Design: Retrospective case series.

Place and Duration of Study: Military Hospital Yol Cant, Himachal Pradesh March 2019 - December 2019.

Methods: A series of cases of ocular trauma in young were evaluated and effectively managed at a single centre.

Results: Six patients of ocular trauma were studied and managed. Out of six patients four were males and 02 females. Male female ratio was 4:2. Out of 6 cases 5 cases had traumatic cataract and one had angle recession. Four out of six patients required surgical intervention while 02 patients were managed with medical therapy.

Conclusion: Eye injuries resulting from ocular trauma pose a frequent threat to vision the world over. While a focussed history and prompt ocular examination are essential to immediate management, patient education regarding safety precautions and risk reduction help to prevent future recurrences.
