Corneal foreign bodies are commonly seen in an ophthalmology emergency. The most common cause of this condition is a workplace-related injury. In these situations, the management differs from patient to patient and depends on a wide range of variables. In this article, we aim to review the literature on corneal foreign bodies in the past 50 years and classify them based on their level of impaction and elaborately discuss all the management options described for each.
