Why can a blow to the front of the eye result in damage to the retina of the eye?


See http://www.aafp.org/afp/20040401/1691.html
for an explanation in medical terms. The entire eye is affected by the pressure wave resulting from the trauma of impact at the front.


Because it can detach the retina
