Although an intraocular eyelash following eye trauma is rarely found, it has been known to excite an immediate or delayed inflammatory reaction. An inflammatory process following perforating trauma can be due to either infection or anaphylactic reaction, either to the lens material or the lash. The possibility that a foreign body may be buried in the lens and cannot be revealed by any diagnostic technique should always be considered.
