A 53-year-old male suffered corneal perforation of his right eye by three pieces of thorns of a chestnut bur while visiting a graveyard and looking up at the sky. After extraction of the thorns, the leakage of aqueous through the wounds was successfully treated by application of an adhesive agent and longterm disposable soft contact lens.
