Cornea/External Disease, Retina/Vitreous
In this video, Drs. Joseph Fong and Ahmed Sallam demonstrate externalization and removal of an impacted corneal foreign body. The object was buried beneath the surface of the cornea and was protruding into the anterior chamber, therefore precluding removal by an external approach. Through a corneal paracentesis, an iris spatula is used to externalize the foreign body retrograde along its entry tract and forceps are used to remove the foreign body.
