Traumatic retinal detachment is caused by blunt contusion, and most of them starts from ora serrata dialysis. Intraocular foreign body usually associates with open-globe injury, for eyes with intraocular foreign body, the nature of the foreign body determines the clinical behavior. Tractional retinal detachment caused by trauma is one of the main causes of blindness. Endophthalmitis is a rare but serious complication, but Retinal detachment associates with endophthalmitis is very common.
