1. What elements of the ocular examination would suggest globe rupture (vision, pupil, conjunctiva/sclera, cornea, anterior chamber, vitreous, retina)?
2. What elements of the ocular examination should be avoided when suspecting ocular rupture to prevent dehiscence of ocular content?
3. What steps should be taken once a globe rupture is confirmed to prepare the patient for surgery?
