Abstract To the Editor. —The recent article in the Archives entitled "Ocular Injuries From Exploding Beverage Bottles" by Mondino et al (96:2040-2041, 1978) is of interest to me, because I happened to see two cases of similar injuries with considerable damage to the eyes, in the summer of 1977. The first case was in a young girl who had been trying to remove the cap from one of the new unbreakable plastic bottles, when the cap hit her left eye, causing corneoscleral laceration, vitreous prolapse, and cataract formation. The second case also occurred when the cap of a bottle hit the patient's eye while she was working in the kitchen; it caused a corneal opacity without affecting her vision.If I see two serious eye injuries in a small community of 25,000 people, in one summer, I must conclude that beverage-bottle injuries of the eyes must not be very infrequent, but http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
