A 26-year-old male presented with defective vision and pain in the right eye since 3 days. He gave a history of trauma to the right eye 18 years ago. Visual acuity in the right eye was 20/40. Slit-lamp examination showed circum corneal congestion, full-thickness corneal scar superonasally, inferior corneal edema, deep anterior chamber, and clear lens [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Intraocular pressure was 16 mmHg. Gonioscopy revealed a foreign body in the inferior angle [Figure 1]c. Posterior segment examination was normal. He underwent foreign body removal, and at final follow-up, his eye was quiet with 20/20 vision [Figure 1]d. Presence of retained intraocular foreign body should be suspected in a patient with recurrent ocular inflammation and history of penetrating injury.[1],[2],[3]
