Research implications

  • There is clearly a need for comparative studies describing features of eye injuries as a consequence of physical abuse in comparison to those resulting from accidental injury
  • A prospective study of infants presenting with subconjunctival haemorrhages to determine the likelihood of coexisting injuries would be of value
  • When eye injuries as a consequence of abuse are being reported, full details of coexistent investigations and injuries will make an important contribution
