Eyelid Fish-Hook Injury Objective: To report a rare case of fish-hook eyelid injury. Methods: Interventional case-report. A 25-year-old man presented with an upper eyelid fish-hook wound. Results: The hook was extracted under local anaesthesia using the back-out method. Postoperatively, no complications were observed. Conclusions: In the absence of serious ocular damage, the back-out method seems to be the best option for the removal of the hook in eyelid injuries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Ophthalmology Springer Journals
