2017 Case Reports in Ophthalmology  
We present the case of a 43-year-old male with a war injury that manifested in damage to the retina in his right eye causing chorioretinitis sclopetaria. Chorioretinitis sclopetaria is a characteristic pattern of choroidal and retinal damage that is caused by a high-velocity projectile passing into the orbit, in close proximity to the eye globe. We discuss this rare situation, the injury mechanism, suggested treatment, and prognosis.
