Intraorbital Foreign Body Removal

Any external object that gets embedded inside the orbit is referred to as an intraorbital foreign body (IOFB). An IOFB may get introduced into the eye by a freak accident such as a high-velocity gunshot or a mishap at the work place. Treatment depends on the nature and location of the injury in the eye. Immediate surgical removal is recommended for metal pieces. Also, certain foreign objects are allowed to remain in the eye if the removal is associated with greater damage.
