Table 1 Characteristics of intraocular foreign bodies and the prognosis in all patients.

No.Foreign bodiesNumber and length of ciliaLocation of the ciliaCorneal condition
1Cilia (preoperative found)2, both 8 mmBehind the posterior lens capsuleTransparency
2Cilia2, both 5 mmPole, scarCorneal suture, edema
3Magnetic intraocular foreign + cilium1, 3 mmAbove the temporalTemporal scar
4Cilium1, 3 mmAnterior chamber angleSuture
5Magnetic intraocular foreign body +cilia3, 3 mm, 3 mm, 5 mmThe temporal side of the optic nerve injuriesCorneal leukoplakia above nasal side
6Cilium1, 2 mmvitreous chamberWound, scar, edema
7Cilia3, all 3 mmTemporal ciliar body, under the nasal of the IRIS backForeign body, scar
8Nonmagnetic intraocular foreign body (multi)+cilium1, 4 mmTemporalscleral injuryCorneal opacity, foreign body
9Nonmagnetic intraocular foreignbody+cilium1, 6.5 mmBelow the nasalTransparent
10Cilium1, 5 mmPosterior poleScar
11Cilium1, 3 mmWrapped the retinaScar
12Nonmagnetic intraocular foreignbody (multi)+cilia4, 1.5–4 mmWith multipleforeign bodiesCorneal opacity,scar
13Cilium1, 3 mmNear the retina woundScar, edema, neovascularization
14Cilia+nonmagnetic intraocular foreignbody2, both 4 mmWrapped the curly retinaSuture
15Cilia+magnetic intraocular foreign body9, 1.5–4 mmNear the retina woundScar, edema
16Cilia+magnetic intraocular foreign body10, 1–4.5 mmNear the retina woundScar, edema
The patient lost after postoperative 11 days, he is the only one that the intraocular cilia were found before the operation. RD – retinal detachment; LP – light perception; HM – hand-movement; CF – counting figures; NLP – no-light perception.
