Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Penetrating globe injury can lead to serious vision loss and even loss of the eye. Intraocular foreign bodies (IOFBs) are a major cause of traumatic globe injury commonly seen in work-related accidents. We present a unique case of a large IOFB that was fully embedded within the choroid, where enucleation was pursued due to inability to safely remove the IOFB.
