A 26-year-old male, laborer by occupation, presented with a history of projectile injury of the right eye while working with hammer. On ocular examination, his best-corrected visual acuity was 20/80 OD and 20/20 OS. Slit-lamp examination revealed a metallic foreign body lying in the crystalline lens [Figure 1]a. Corneal entry wound was noted by the presence of self-sealed full-thickness corneal laceration. The fundus was normal. Scheimpflug imaging revealed the depth of penetration of lens [Figure 1]b. Phacoaspiration with foreign body removal was done. Penetrating trauma with metal foreign bodies is a common mode of ocular injury in mechanical workers.
