Ocular perforations can occur for a variety of reasons, and their appearance can vary significantly depending on size, etiology, and chronicity.

It is important to recognize when an eye has ruptured or perforated, as surgical correction may be required to maintain the integrity of the eye and ensure the best prognosis for long-term vision and comfort.
