Abstract Purpose:To report cases of post-traumatic foreign body treated at the Department of Ophthalmology, Matsuyama Red Cross Hospital.

Cases and Method:We reviewed 7 cases of post-traumatic foreign body seen during 15 years through 2018. Cases were evaluated regarding age, type and location of foreign body, orbital infection, and final visual acuity.

Results:The series comprised 2 infants aged less than 3 years and 5 adults aged from 58 to 67 years. The foreign body was metallic in 2 cases, glass in 2 cases, and wooden in 3 cases. It was located close to extraocular muscles in 3 cases, in the orbital apex in 2 cases, and in the paranasal sinus in 2 cases. Infection by microorganisms was present in all the 3 cases of injury by wood. Visual acuity improved in 6 cases after removal of foreign body. On case injured by wood in the orbital apex died because of brain herniation following epidural hematoma.

Conclusion:Surgical removal of foreign body in or near the orbit is necessary, particularly when the injury is due to piece of wood that may induce infection.
