Abstract

Intraocular foreign bodies (IOFBs) can complicate globe trauma and are associated with a high incidence of severe vision loss. Occult IOFBs present a particular challenge as they are not diagnosed promptly and tend to present with advanced complications, including endophthalmitis and retinal detachment. In this report, we present three cases of occult nonme-tallic IOFBs presenting as fulminant uveitis, and we also review the literature.
