Abstract: Siderosis bulbi is a sight-threatening condition characterized by a pigmentary and degenerative change in the eye that follows the intra-ocular retention of a foreign body containing iron. The main cause of ocular siderosis is penetrating trauma mostly by hammering a steel object without or with poor eye protection. Herein, we report a case of siderosis bulbi after penetrating trauma that was lately treated with vitrectomy to remove the foreign body, and despite treatment resulted in ocular globe atrophy.
