Need some help. Does anyone know of any good review articles on managing common eye injuries from sports? Thanks.

Ocular trauma, regardless of what you're doing, often result in:

1) traumatic mydriasis
2) hyphema
3) corneal abrasions
4) FB in cornea
5) open globe
6) sub-conj hemorrhage
7) glaucoma
8) lid laceration involving canalicular and lid margins
9) Commotio retinae
10) Vitreous hemorrhage
11) choroidal rupture
12) traumatic optic neuropathy
13) and other things I've left off the list... ;)

Try these on medline:
