Ocular trauma is one of the most common reasons for ophthalmology consultation in emergency department. Ultrasonography is a non-invasive simple and effective diagnostic method which enables visualization and evaluation of intraocular injuries in opaque media. CT orbit can detect certain types of foreign bodies, lens dislocation, rupture globe, choroidal or retinal detachment, and cavernous sinus thrombosis and thus compliments bedside ophthalmic examinations which are limited in the setting of trauma. MRI is an important modality in special circumstances such as soft tissue assessment or with organic foreign bodies.
