Penetrating ocular injuries following direct impact of fish are rare. A 26-year-old man presented to the emergency department with history of pain and blurring of vision following injury to the left eye due to the impact of glass perchlet fish. Ocular examination revealed best corrected visual acuity of log of minimum angle of resolution (logMAR) 0.18, eyelid edema, blepharospasm, and circumcorneal congestion. A full-thickness corneal laceration measuring 3 mm, confirmed by positive Seidel's test, and a partial-thickness corneal laceration measuring 1.5 mm were noted. Patient was managed by application of cyanoacrylate glue and bandage contact lens. We report the first case of corneal perforation by glass perchlet fish.
