The purpose of this single case report was to report the use of anterior segment optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis and management of a retained vegetal intraocular foreign body.

Case report
A 23-year-old otherwise healthy male presented with a progressive visual loss in the right eye (RE). He reported a mild ocular trauma with a tree leaf 1 year ago followed by recurrent episodes of redness and pain in the RE that partially resolved after a self-medication with topical steroids. On ocular examination, his visual acuity was of light perception in the RE and 20/20 in the left eye (LE). Slit-lamp examination of the RE showed a normal cornea, fine keratic precipitates, 2+ cells in the anterior chamber, and an iris granuloma with adjacent inflammatory exudate. The anterior chamber depth was irregular with irido-capsular lens adhesions, and a mature cataract was noted.
