Keywords: Exercise band, ocular trauma, COVID-19


Sports-related activities have been associated with numerous ocular injuries. A 37-year old female patient with ocular trauma associated with exercise band used during resistance exercise has been presented. While ocular injuries caused by the exercise band were rarely reported before the COVID-19 pandemic, number of those case reports has been increased during the last couple of years. Health professionals, trainers and athletes should be aware of potential ocular injuries caused by the elastic band and precautions should be taken.
