Open globe injuries with intraocular foreign bodies are important cause of visual morbidity. Timely detection of foreign body is must to improve the visual outcome and to prevent eye from developing complications. It is important to understand the need of meticulous history taking and thorough examination besides other investigations to detect foreign body. Glass foreign bodies are little difficult to visualize because of its transparent nature. The best time to detect foreign body is at the time of primary repair. Until one suspects the presence of foreign body, it is missed most of the time. We chose to report this case as it is unusual to miss big IOFB in anterior chamber impacted in lens matter at the time of primary corneal repair. It is important to remember that an ounce of vigilant vision is worth a pound of care.
