A young man working in a workshop sustained penetrating injury to his left eye and reported
within 12 hours to Eye Hospital. Plain X-ray orbit confirmed the presence of intraocular foreign
body near pars plana. Corneal wound of entry was repaired with 10/0 suture. The intraocular
foreign body was removed by magnet through trans scleral magnet via pars plana approach
without 3 port vitrectomy procedure. Mild traumatic endophthalmitis was controlled by intravitreal
injection of Vancomycin 1mg/0.1ml, along with topical antibiotic and steroid therapy.
After 6 weeks, extraction of soft traumatic cataract and posterior chamber lens implantation
was done. Best-corrected vision of 6/12 was achieved.
