The present case has been reported in the Journal of the Scientific Society. A 27-year-old male carpenter presented in casualty with complaints of redness in left eye after being hit by a flying iron chip 2 h back while working with hammer and chisel without wearing protective glasses.

On examination, his unaided visual acuity was 20/20 in left eye. Slit lamp examination showed a self-sealed corneal entry site at 5 O'clock position and iron chip embedded on iris at 7 O'clock position. There was no damage to sclera, lens, aqueous and vitreous was clear. Fundus examination was also normal. B-scan was normal. The right eye was normal.

Cornea showed self-sealed entry site with no other ocular injury. With such good vision, there is a definite challenge to maintain vision and avoid subsequent serious complications.

The foreign body was successfully removed via limbal route with use of forceps. Postoperative best corrected visual acuity was 20/20 with very minimal surgical damage.
