Introduction

Foreign bodies in the eye can cause discomfort, pain, and potential damage to the eye. It is important to promptly diagnose and treat foreign bodies to prevent complications and promote healing.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: F76 Foreign body in eye
– ICD-10 Code: T15 Foreign body on external eye

Symptoms

  • Eye pain: Patients may experience pain or discomfort in the affected eye.
  • Redness: The eye may appear red or bloodshot.
  • Tearing: Excessive tearing or watery eyes may occur.
  • Sensation of something in the eye: Patients may feel like there is something in their eye, such as a grain of sand or a foreign object.
  • Blurred vision: Vision may be temporarily blurred or affected.
  • Light sensitivity: The eye may be more sensitive to light.

Causes

  • Dust or debris: Small particles of dust or debris can enter the eye and cause irritation.
  • Chemical exposure: Exposure to chemicals or irritants can cause foreign bodies in the eye.
  • Foreign objects: Objects such as metal, wood, or glass can accidentally enter the eye and cause injury.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s symptoms, including the duration and severity of symptoms.
  • Ask about any recent activities or exposures that may have led to the foreign body entering the eye.
  • Inquire about any previous eye injuries or conditions that may increase the risk of foreign bodies.

Physical Examination

  • Inspect the affected eye for redness, swelling, or discharge.
  • Assess visual acuity to determine if there is any impairment.
  • Use a slit lamp to examine the eye more closely and identify any foreign bodies.

Laboratory Tests

  • No specific laboratory tests are typically required for diagnosing a foreign body in the eye.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • In most cases, diagnostic imaging is not necessary for diagnosing a foreign body in the eye.
  • However, if there is suspicion of a more severe injury or if the foreign body is not visible, imaging modalities such as X-rays or CT scans may be used to locate the foreign body.

Other Tests

  • Fluorescein staining: This test involves placing a special dye in the eye to help identify any corneal abrasions or ulcers caused by the foreign body.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Provide instructions for follow-up care, including any necessary medications or treatments.
  • Educate the patient about the importance of avoiding rubbing or touching the affected eye to prevent further injury.
  • Advise the patient to seek immediate medical attention if symptoms worsen or if there is no improvement after treatment.
