  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 55-year-old male had been diagnosed as aphakic glaucoma in the left eye five years before. He had the past history of perforating injury by a nail 30 years before. The intraocular pressure was controlled by topical medication. Sudden visual field disturbance led to detection of yellowish white foreign body in the anterior chamber. The extracted foreign body was identified as ferrous in nature buried in the Soemmering's ring. The affected eye showed no sign of siderosis bulbi.
