In the present paper patterns of ocular trauma are studied in different age groups in 1600 cases. The age groups are divided in steps of 10 i.e. 0-10, 11-20,21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60 and 60-70. Various specific features in these age groups are highlighted. As there is a sharp fall of numbers after 40 years features in higher age groups are not so important.
