A 5-year-old girl presented with penetrating ocular trauma associated with severe intraocular inflammation and hypotony persisting after globe repair. On re-exploration, intraocular eyelashes were found in the posterior chamber causing fibrosis and ciliary body traction. The child underwent membranectomy with anterior vitrectomy. Postoperatively, the inflammation subsided with steroids and cycloplegic therapy and vision improved to 6/24. This report describes a unique case of intraocular eyelashes that caused severe inflammation along with hypotony that were not found by routine slit-lamp examination but identified during membranectomy.
