young male patient with the left penetrating eye injury and intraocular foreign body was consulted to our clinic. His left visual acuity was 0.7-0.8. His right eye examination was normal and his visual acuity in the right eye was 1.0. At the fundus examination on the left eye a 3 mm intravitreal metalic foreign body was determined. His left eye underwent pars plana vitrectomy and extraction of the intraocular foreign body. At the end of first postoperative month, his left visual acuity was 0.8 and a giant tear was determined in this eye. In conclusion, after the pars plana vitrectomy surgery, the importance of evaluation of 360 degree periferal retina, vitreous base and sclerotomy sites especially with indentation was discussed.
