The aim of this article is to describe the principles that should guide the management of an orbital trauma with ocular injury through an updated review of the literature and the study of a clinical case involving an 80-year-old woman who presented with a penetrating orbital wound due to a wooden foreign body with a closed ocular trauma. Satisfactory and stable results over time are determined by systematically analyzing and evaluating each aspect of the case following a surgical strategy based on the most current protocols.
