Blunt ocular trauma causes severe retinal injury with death of neuroretinal tissue, scarring, and permanent visual loss. The mechanisms of cell death are not known, and there are no therapeutic interventions that improve visual outcome. We aimed to study the extent, distribution, and functional consequences of cell death by developing and characterizing a rat model of retinal injury caused by blunt ocular trauma.
