Intraorbital foreign bodies should be thoroughly looked for and removed judiciously and timely in order to avoid sight-threatening complications. In this series of cases, three patients presented with various types of intraorbital foreign bodies secondary to trauma or iatrogenic causes. After confirmation of diagnosis using appropriate radiological investigations, the foreign bodies were retrieved with the help of suitable surgical techniques. Timely intervention prevented infection and other inflammatory processes such as siderosis and other serious complications like airway obstruction and chemical injury. Meticulous examination supported by radiological investigations is the mainstay of management in cases of orbital trauma.
