This paper presents the most comprehensive eye injury study to date investigating 10,770,828 weighted occupants from 22,236 cases for the years 1993 through 1999. The purpose of the study was to investigate dye injuries and orbital fractures resulting from frontal automobile crashes and to determine the effects of frontal airbags.
