Foreign Body in Anterior Chamber

GA is a 34-year-old native of Vanuatu who was hammering a piece of metal when he suddenly felt pain in his right eye with blurry vision that worsened over the next several days. He made his way to a local medical outpost and was given a bottle of antibiotic eye drops. This helped a little but over the next several weeks his vision deteriorated. A team from Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International was coming to the capital, Port Villa, and screening volunteers were working through the main islands to find patients for the visiting doctors. He was seen by one of them and referred to Port Villa for the SEE team because his vision was down to hand motions in the right eye. Their examination found 2+ corneal edema and a significant anterior chamber reaction that prevented a view of the posterior segment.
