Ocular trauma is a disabling but preventable cause of blindness which can lead to disproportionate personal, social and economic handicaps. This snapshot deals with individuals belonging to different cohorts: a young child and an elderly lady who inadvertently injured their eyes by thorns. Peculiarity about the thorns' trajectory was such that the large-sized thorns pierced the outer coats of the eye without actually puncturing them. Rapid diagnosis and management ensured the quick anatomic restoration and visual recovery.
