Sir,

We read your article with keen interest and congratulate you for the efforts taken to create a comprehensive classification system for ocular trauma.[1] It was the need of the hour considering the deficiencies of the previous systems. We also understand that no classification system can completely encompass the whole spectrum of ophthalmic injuries as most of them are mixed.

As we read the article, we came across a few points which we would like you to clarify. We would like to know if intramural foreign body can be classified in destructive globe injuries since the thickness through which the foreign body penetrates the ocular coats is not specified.

Further, one-third full-thickness laceration has been classified as a destructive injury. We believe that a lamellar laceration (closed globe type) cannot be differentiated from a one-third full-thickness laceration (destructive globe type). The classification system previously published by the authors is much realistic in classifying the destructive injuries with full thickness laceration and one-third globe circumference.[2]

We would also like to know if classifying into a new group of mixed injuries which include global and adnexal injuries as was seen previously would help make the classification system more comprehensive. We firmly believe that it is much more imperative to incorporate and comprehend collectively the foreign body injuries within the classification of ocular trauma.[2]
