Is he the Luckiest Patient?

This is case of Intra Ocular Foreign Body (IOFB). Six months back, the patient while working with chisel and hammer had an accident and an iron chip entered his eye. Now following things happened,

1. The cornea was saved as the chip entered through pars plana.

2. For the same reason even retina was saved from detachment.

3. The velocity of the chip while it traveled in air sterilized it and thus there was no infection.

4. The site of impact was close to macula and atrophy of retina and choroids at the site can be seen now (where the chip actually had an impact) but again there was no retinal break or a exit wound.

5. The patient had a Vitreous hemorrhage which has cleared now after 6 months and patient has at present a vision of 6/9P. The patient had an injury where most would lose their vision but this man’s vision survived.

Isn’t he the luckiest patient? You vote on that!

To prevent long term complications of an iron IOFB like siderosis and TRD Patient has been advised vitrectomy and IOFB removal which he is scheduled to undergo soon.

Hello All,


This is a patient I saw today, referred to me as a case of RD, and surprise surprise… here was a live worm in a cyst moving within the vitreous! This is the largest live and moving cyst I have seen in my career. A Question for you all (even non doctors) - Guess the species. Post your replies at [email protected]

Dear all,


Today I will share with you the idea of starting this website. As a doctor who has worked in the field of Eye and Retina for 13 years now, I still find that an average patient has a very poor knowledge regarding this very specialized field. The purpose is to educate a patient so that he may take better care of himself.


Retinal diseases, once thought untreatable, even by Ophthalmologists, are now being treated successfully. The message is even if you have problem in your retina, do not worry, take due care and visit a retina surgeon ASAP and there are good chances that you will be alright!


I specially request you to please visit the Know your disease section of this site for some very important information.


I shall be waiting for your response and any questions will be very much welcome.


Yours truly,


Dr Kapil Paliwal
