Core Tip The epidemiology eye injuries among British Columbian children and adolescents have been eluci-dated using the Trauma Registry data. The finding that approximately 72% eye injury patients in the 15-19 age groups have consumed alcohol prior to injury is unprecedented, important and need a sensible pre-vention intervention. Moreover, common causes of eye injury in the 15-19 year age group include vehicular crashes, firearm misuse, and assault. Therefore, pre-ventative programs aimed at older children must target the children directly, providing education about potential causes and ramifications of eye injury.
