Sometimes, the foreign body may not be present at the time of examination, having left the residual corneal abrasion with resultant pain. Superficial corneal foreign bodies are much more common than deeply embedded corneal foreign bodies. The possibility of an intraocular foreign body must always be considered when a patient presents with a history of trauma. In major league baseball, 33% of all eye injuries are corneal abrasions; in the National Basketball Association, corneal
