Aims: To examine the demographics and outcome of management in patients admitted with sports-related eye injuries in one of Jakarta's eye hospitals. Methods: Retrospective analysis 24 patients who admitted to a tertiary eye hospital in Jakarta with sports-related eye injuries between 2014 to 2019 was conducted. Standard descriptive statistical methods were used for analysis. Results: Out of 534 patients admitted to our hospital with ocular trauma between 2014 to 2019, 24 patients (4.5%) had sport-related eye injuries. Most patients were male (17/24, 70.8%), below 25 years old (18/24, 75%) and students (7/24, 29.2%) by occupation. The most common cause of injury was badminton (9/24, 37.5%) followed by ball games (6/24, 25%) and fishing (3/24, 12.5%). Most patients suffered from closed globe injuries (16/24, 66.7%). Anterior segment of the eye was mostly involved (16/24, 66.7%) with hyphema being the most common clinical presentation (11/24,45.8%), followed by palpebrae edema (5/24, 20.8%). Patients were mostly admitted with moderate visual impairment (14/24, 58.3%). Most patients were managed by medical treatment (16/24, 66.7%) while those with more severe presentations underwent surgeries (7/24, 29.2%). Complications such as secondary glaucoma (1/24, 4.2%) and graft-rejection (1/24, 4.2%) were recorded. Conclusion: The incidence of sports-related eye injuries increases every year. Badminton was responsible for the most cases of sports-related eye injuries. These injuries could result in severe complications. Protective eyewear could prevent these injuries.
