In India, firecrackers are an integral and essential part of the celebrations. Injuries from firecrackers can lead to serious and irreparable visual damage. We report a case of choroidal rupture following injury caused by firecracker and correlate its optical coherence tomography findings. As ocular firecracker injuries result in significant morbidity, public education regarding proper use of firecrackers may help in reducing the incidence of ocular injuries.
