A 23-year-old lady was working at her sewing machine when she was struck in the left eye by something, probably a piece from a hand mirror, which her children were playing with. She presented with a hard object palpable just above and behind her left upper lid. CT scan revealed a large foreign body, which was subsequently surgically removed. The need for extreme caution as well as the surgical plan and procedure for removing such brittle and hazardous objects from the orbit are discussed in this report.
