Hi doctor,

One month ago, some iron particle fell into my left eye. When I went to the hospital, they said that there is a scar on the front of the pupil. Also, I was informed that there is no treatment for that. Please tell me some solution.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You seem to have a residual scar on your cornea post removal of iron particle. Usually, iron particles leave behind a very small scar, which do not affect vision significantly.
  • The scar by itself is non-progressive. If there is no loss of vision or glare, it is better to leave it untouched.
  • However, if there is any significant decrease in vision, then laser removal of superficial scar or a burr polishing of localized rust ring may be done.
