A 55-year-old male presented with foreign-body sensation in the left eye, with a history of hammering a chisel. On slit-lamp evaluation, two iron corneal foreign particles with rust ring were noted. The foreign bodies were removed with 26G hypodermic needle after instilling local anesthetic drops. The purpose of this manuscript was to provide a better understanding of the role of Scheimpflug imaging in objective evaluation of corneal epithelialization in such situations. Scheimpflug imaging along with anterior segment optical coherence tomography can be used to support diagnosis, objectively monitor the healing process (epithelialization) after removal, and reveal unexpected lesions, invisible on slit-lamp biomicroscopy.
