Cow horn eye injuries are not common but are devastating causes of uniocular blindness amongst young active population. Early and appropriate intervention can save the life of the patient depending on the severity of the injury. This uncommon cause of unilateral visual loss can be prevented if slaughtering of cows are done by trained and appropriately equipped personnel.
