Orbital foreign bodies are seen commonly, but the presence of an unusually large organic foreign body in-toto in the orbital cavity is rare. Here, we are discussing a case of the organic orbital foreign body following a fall. A 22-year-old gentleman with a history of fall presented to us with a large organic foreign body in his right orbit with the collapsed globe. Following thorough history and evaluation, the foreign body was removed and the globe was repaired. The eye became phthisical. A custom-fit prosthesis was applied a month after surgery. We are highlighting the importance of surgical intervention and follow-up to achieve good cosmetic outcomes and the importance of protective gear in the workplace.
