A 22-year-old male presented with injury with a copper wire to left eye at the workplace. Visual acuity was reduced to finger counting with severe ocular pain. Slit lamp examination showed that the intraocular foreign body entered the anterior chamber through a 0.5 mm scleral wound and pierced through iris and lens causing a traumatic cataract. The patient was taken to operatingtheater with a removal of the copper wire and primary closure of the scleral wound. Two weeks' postoperatively, the patient was taken up for a cataract surgery but left aphakic. He is to be posted for a scleral-fixated intraocular lens at a later date.
