The patient had removal of the retained foreign body and corneal repair with 9/0 nylon the following day. The procedure was well tolerated and patient did well on topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, cycloplegic agent, topical and systemic antibiotics. In view of the traumatic cataract patient had, he was to have secondary surgical intervention when inflammation resolved fully.
