Three consecutive cases presenting with intra-lenticular foreign bodies (ILFBs) were included in this series. ILFB retrieval with Kelman–McPherson forceps, along with cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation in the bag was performed as a single-staged procedure for all under peri-operative systemic and topical steroids. Their visual recovery was excellent at 4 months with best-corrected visual acuity of 20/20, N6. Careful clinical and relevant radiological evaluation is paramount following penetrating ocular injury to rule out intraocular foreign body, especially ferrous, to avert the most visually debilitating sequelae of ocular siderosis. This series highlights a favourable outcome of ILFB removal with concurrent management of cataract.
