Ophthalmia nodosa with vitreoretinal involvement is rare and may cause permanent loss of eye due to persistent inflammation of the eye. A young female patient having multiple caterpillar hair in the eye including cornea, anterior chamber, sclera, and pars plana presented with recurrent vitritis and pars planitis. Ultrasound biomicroscopy played a vital role and helped in localizing the hair embedded in the pars plana region which were managed by pars plana vitrectomy leading to complete recovery.
