"Executive Summary" ( lazy bastard version )

The article makes several points.

1. the injuries recorded were all young males
2. the number of reported injuries from airsoft guns is increasing
3. all reported injuries resulted in no penetration of the eye (some leaking of fluid though
4. all victims recovered 7 out of 8 returned to 20/20 vision one to 20/25

result: Although Injuries due to airsoft pellets are much less severe than "traditional pellets" and much less likely to result in permanent injury it is still not something that you want to have happen. The proliferation of cheap easily attainable airsoft and soft air guns within the young male population will likely result in an increase of this type of injury.
