Eyelash complications in the anterior chamber.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 9-year-old child was admitted because of a penetrating corneal wound with a solitary eyelash in the anterior chamber. Anterior uveitis, posterior synechias, and localized anterior subcapsular cataract subsequently developed. As the latter complications did not respond to conservative treatment, the eyelash was removed surgically. The expected complications of an intraocular cilium and the surgical indications for its removal are discussed in detail.
