The ultrasound in ocular traumatism is an essential technique of examination. It is the gold standard technique in case of intraocular foreign body. In these patients magnetic resonance is completely avoided, in a possible metallic foreign body. The ocular trauma makes difficult the posterior segment visualization and echography helps us determine retina lesions, as retinal detachment. The echography is essential for determining intraocular foreign body location.

Keywords: Ocular injury, Globus rupture, penetrating ocular injuries, ocular perforation, intraocular foreign body.
