A 31-years-old male presented with history of fall of insect in the right eye while driving motorbike. The patient had redness, foreign-body sensation, and pain. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) 20/200 and epithelial defect of dimensions 4 mm × 3 mm were noted [Figure 1]a. Linear foreign body penetrating cornea in its full thickness with tip reaching anterior chamber, Descemet's folds, and corneal haziness around the foreign body were present. Foreign body removal via limbal incision was done [Figure 1]b. Parasitology assessment of foreign body was suggestive of bee-sting. The patient gained BCVA of 20/20 with topical antibiotics, steroids, and lubricants. The clinical outcome depends on timely intervention and topical or systemic steroids.[1]
