This is a retrospective case report of a male patient referred to the PUC Campinas Hospital as a victim of blunt car trauma. On ophthalmological examination, the patient had bilateral retinal changes in the foveal region, causing low visual acuity in both eyes. Knowing that ocular trauma is the main cause of legal blindness in working-age people, this study aimed to highlight the importance of ophthalmological evaluation to provide the necessary treatment and follow-up to minimize the ocular sequelae resulting from trauma.
