A 27-year-old female patient sustained a left eye injury while manipulating a hook end bungee-type elastic cord. She suffered from severe anterior and posterior segments ocular trauma that required two surgeries and left her with permanent sequelae. The aim of this paper is to present a literature review on ocular trauma associated with bungee cords.
