Eye injuries continue to increase in frequency and are commonly accompanied maxillofacial and head multiple injuries, secondary to road traffic accidents (RTAs). Their management is normally requiring multidisciplinary team management including ophthalmic, maxillofacial, and neurosurgeons, an opportunity which cannot be achieved unless in multidisciplinary facilities. The purpose of this study is to report multidisciplinary management of devastating mid-facial and orbital direct trauma from a shattered car window glass in RTA. A 2-year-old girl was rushed to the Emergency Department of the Royal Care International Hospital in Khartoum, with a mid-facial massive injury involving the orbit, following RTA; her parents were seeking for a second opinion after that the left eye enucleation was planned in another general hospital. The case discussion reviewed the initial examination, resultant management decisions, and final excellent visual outcome.
