Abstract

An 18-year-old male high school student presented to our clinic with bilateral blunt ocular trauma caused by an exercise resistance band (ERB) during a muscle-building exercise. Best-corrected decimal visual acuities (BCVAs) for right and left eyes were light perception and 0.15, respectively. The right eye was operated 10 days after injury for persistent vitreous hemorrhage, and the left eye 5 months later because of macular hole onset. After 36 months, the right eye showed extensive retinal degeneration (BCVA 0.04), and the left eye macular hole closure (BCVA 1.2). ERBs should be used cautiously as they can cause serious ocular trauma.
