Orbital foreign bodies can have a variety of presentations like restriction of extraocular movement and orbital cellulitis. A child sustained injury to the right eye with a piece of wood. He had features of cellulitis but no signs of septicemia. The noncontrast computed tomography showed a hyperdense structure suggestive of a large foreign body located in the retro-orbital area upto the apex of the orbit. He presented with shock which was consistent with cardiogenic shock, probably secondary to oculocardiac reflex, as evident by the presence of bradycardia, systemic hypotension and low SpO2. On removal of the foreign body, the vitals improved.
