Paintball ocular injuries - a preventable disaster.
Pak Armed Forces Med J Jan ;66(1):169-70.
As the paintball sports including war games have become popular, the incidence of paintball ocular injuries has increased considerably. These injuries are usually blunt trauma resulting from paintball projectiles, which travel at a speed of 80-130 m/s. We report 3 cases of ocular paintball injuries with compromised visual outcome sustained in unprotected environment highlighting the importance of compulsory use of American society for testing and material (ASTM) compliant eye protective devices (EPD) during paintball related activities.
