Dr. Rahul further said that the foreign body particle hit his left eye and got stuck while he was working after which corneal entry wound got self sealed, closed.
He went on to say that the particle moves very fast through air and gets inert (self sterilized) but no infection happened to patient’s eye in the last 10 years.
Dr. Rahul removed the stone particle (4/3/2 mm) from his eye along with the cataract and new intra ocular lens have been implanted. ‘Mohan has been keeping well, soon he will completely recover and be able to attend his duty in a week’, added Dr. Rahul.
