Ocular trauma is a major cause of ocular morbidity and unilateral visual function loss in developing countries, although it usually does not result in bilateral vision impairment. However, considering the impact of blindness, that the population at risk is usually the productive age groups, and the potential person days loss of work associated with treatment of the trauma, the impact of ocular trauma can be enormous. This study is made to descibe characteristics of ocular trauma patients in Sanglah General Hospital. This report is an observational cross sectional study. Data were collected retrospectively from medical report from July 2011 until February 2015. A total of 905 subjects were studied, consists of 671 men (74.1%) and 234 women (25.9%). The majority of patients were between 21 – 30 years old (20.9%) (p=0.006).Closed globe injury was the most frequent type of ocular trauma in Sanglah Hospital (49.5%) (p=0.001). Wood was the major cause of trauma in this study (16.8%)(p=0.001).  The majority of the eye injuries occurred at home (59.2%) (p=0.001). Visual acuity of majority case were worse than 3/60 (p=0.001). Ocular trauma is one of the main causes of preventable blindness, but there is still lack effort to prevent it, especially in Bali.
