❖ A retinal injury (for example at the site of the impact of the foreign body) can lead to retinal detachment.

❖ Failure to remove iron foreign bodies can lead to ocular siderosis, which causes irreparable damage to the receptors and may manifest itself years later.

❖ Copper foreign bodies cause severe inflammatory reactions in the eye (ocular chalcosis) within a few hours. Symptoms range from uveitis and hypopyon to phthisis bulbi (shrinkage and hypotonia of the eyeball).

❖ Organic foreign bodies (such as wood) in the eye lead to fulminant endophthalmitis.
