Abstract

Background: Point-of-care ultrasound has been widely used by clinicians, particularly those in emergency care settings. Findings: A 44-year-old male who sustained a blunt ocular trauma resulting in acute vision loss due to posterior dislocation of the crystalline lens identified by point-of-care ultrasound is described in the study. Point-of-care ultrasound with a high linear-array transducer was used to gain the sagittal view of the eye globe. Conclusions: Point-of-care ultrasound can be a useful tool to make a rapid diagnosis of ocular emergency including lens abnormality.
