Introduction: Ocular trauma is a preventable cause of monocular blindness that results in morbidity and sight loss. In this study, we evaluated the impact of ocular trauma on the quality of life. Materials and Methods: In this prospective cohort study, we included all ocular trauma cases presented at Drashti Netralaya enrolled between August 2019 and August 2020. Demographic, clinical, and trauma documentation were done using a pretested online format for all the enrolled cases with specified inclusion and exclusion criteria. The life quality score was recorded using the Indian Version of Visual Function Questionnaire (VFQ). The VFQ scores were recorded before and after treatment. All data were exported into Excel sheets and analyzed with SPSS 22 using descriptive and cross-tabulation. The numerical variables were tested using one-sample t-test. P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: Our study cohort consisted of 284 patients, of which 211 (68.1%) were adults and 85 (39.9%) were children. Furthermore, 199 (70.1%) were men, and 93 (30%) were women. The mean age of the patients was 29.36 ± 17.38 years. On a comparative study, a significant difference was found between the pretreatment and posttreatment vision as well as VFQ score. Conclusion: Ocular trauma can cause sight loss and morbidity and affect the quality of life. Successful management of ocular trauma can cause a significant difference in the vision as well as quality of life.
