• Computed tomography (CT) is the preferred modality in the setting of ocular trauma and intraorbital or intraocular foreign bodies. • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is preferred when suspecting organic intraocular foreign bodies. • Blunt trauma can cause anteroposterior compression with expansion in the equatorial plane. This may result in various injuries including dislocated lens, vitreous hemorrhage, choroidal and/or retinal detachment, optic nerve avulsion, and ruptured globe, most can be demonstrated on CT.
