Closed-globe injuries are common to both primary and secondary blast injury.
Secondary blast injury comprises penetrating or blunt-force injury to any part of the eye or orbit; open globe injuries, lacerations of the lacrimal system and eyelids comprise the majority of injuries in this group.
Other injury mechanisms include secondary blast injury from flying objects, including metal casing or objects from the explosive device.
