Intraocular Foreign Body

more about Intraocular Foreign Body




Normal

Abnormal
  • This occurs when a small foreign body -- most commonly metal from grinding equipment, drills, or hammers -- gets into the eye and causes inflammation. The foreign body gets into the fluid of the eyeball, where there is a high risk of infection. A corneal Laceration (a cut in the outer covering of the eye) often occurs at the same time.

  • Anecdotal -- "something hit my eye"
  • Sometimes visual loss

  • Done by an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye diseases)

  • Immediate ophthalmology evaluation
  • Treatment for corneal Laceration if it occurs -- see corneal Laceration section
  • Tetanus vaccination should be given if individual is not current.

  • You need immediate emergency evaluation. Untreated, this condition can lead to permanent blindness in the affected eye.
