  1. L. Salminen and
  2. A. Ranta


    Two cases of orbital injuries caused by the jet of water from an irrigation sprinkler are described; they were of a type not previously reported. The jet of water, possessing high kinetic energy, stretched the orbital tissues and resulted in a rupture which followed the anatomical seams. Thus there was no bleeding, but oedema was present. The eyeball was also injured.
