Project Description

These illustrations accompany a JAMA Patient Page article series that relays basic information for a patient audience about common injuries to the eye and the bones surrounding the eye. The figures depict the anatomy of the eye and orbit and further describe and visualize three common eye injuries: corneal abrasion, subconjunctival hemorrhage, and orbital fractures. While some ocular traumas are generally not harmful and resolve on their own, others may cause irreversible blindness and loss of the eye.
