A 27-year-old man presented to the emergency department with metallic-like foreign-body deposition on the entire aspect of both corneas associated with intense irritation, tearing, and photophobia. The corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) was counting fingers in the right eye and light perception (LP) in the left eye. Slitlamp examination revealed diffuse, galaxy-like, golden-brown confluent deposits on the cornea, sclera, and conjunctiva of both eyes. The eyes were irrigated several times, followed by foreign-body removal and corneal repair. A penetrating keratoplasty was later performed in the right eye. After 1 year of follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic and the CDVA improved in the right eye but remained LP in the left eye due to macular scar formation secondary to severe tractional macular edema. © 2013 ASCRS and ESCRS.
