2 cases of IOFB floating in the vitreous using magnetic device to be reported


A 4 mm long pars plana sclerotomy tangential to the limbus was created at site of the FB. Magnet was placed and FB removed Wound vitrectomy was done before and after FB removal


After 3 months patients had a BCVA of 20/20 and 20/25 respectively. In selected cases that the FB is just close to the eye wall and not attached or imbedded in retina, and also if it’s position is anterior enough so that it is accessible with magnet at pars plana
