A 13-year-old child had left orbital trauma by wood. He consulted 2 week after for decreased visual acuity and eye pain. The ophthalmological examination showed the presence of a wound of autotight cornea a wooden foreign body incarcerated in the iris and the lens. Extraction of the foreign body associated with an adapted antibiotic treatment led to clinical improvement.
