We appreciate the comments of Sodhi et al. [1] on our manuscript.[2] In our study, zone of injury did not correlate significantly with rise in intraocular pressure (IOP). Eyes with open globe injury (OGI) developed elevated IOP much later in the course of follow-up, that is, beyond 1 month, compared with closed globe injury (CGI) in whom the elevated IOP was noted within 1 month of trauma.

All 13 cases of cataract were direct result of trauma (both CGI and OGI) and were managed surgically.

A step-up protocol for topical anti-glaucoma medications (AGMs) was followed. Treatment was started with minimum required AGMs, and sequentially drugs were added till the target IOP was achieved. More number of cases with CGI required surgical intervention when compared with OGI.
