PENETRATING CORNEAL FISH-HOOK INJURY
A healthy 13-year-old female was struck in the left eye by a fish-hook while fishing. The fish-hook penetrated the cornea, passed the anterior chamber and exited from a second corneal site near the limbus. The fish-hook was removed by cutting its shank and pushing it out of the wounds. Visual acuity was 20/20 OS after surgery. Mild corneal scarring was present at the penetration sites. We would like to report this case because there is a limited number of patients with penetrating corneal fish-hook injuries and this case presents the only female patient in the ophthalmological literature who suffered corneal fishhook injury.
