Rigid blade lawn trimmers consist of a rigid rotating blade on the end of a long handle. The blade, made of either rigid plastic or steel, is used to cut through heavy brush. We previously described a variety of injuries associated with nylon line lawn trimmers. We have encountered two cases of ocular trauma associated with rigid blade lawn trimmers, one of which occurred with the motor switched off.
