  We all have become slaves to our mobile phones for most of our daily activities which directly or indirectly has hazardous impact on our health and lives especially for vision. Although blast injuries are common with war, cooking gas and firecracker, but in last couple of years, mobile phone blast cases also popularly known as “BOMBILE” (Blast of Mobile Battery in Living Eye) are coming up which are time to time reported on internet and in scientific journals. We present a case series of 3 patients presented with phone battery explosion which highlights how this technology driven device created to make our lives easier can be a menace and why there is an urgent need to create awareness in society for their safe and proper handling.
