In the United States, over 1.9 million civilian eye injuries occur annually . Furthermore, with the recent conflict, the military has experienced a dramatic 17%–26% increase in rate of injury to the eyes . Risk functions for various eye injuries, particularly globe rupture, have already been developed and show area-normalized energy (based on the mass, size, and velocity of the projectile) to be most highly correlated to injury [3–5]. However, it remains desirable to further investigate the relationship between area-normalized energy and the eye injury mechanism.
