In vivo identification of foreign bodies in the cornea may be impossible if the size and/or location precludes visualization by slit lamp biomicroscopy, which has an upper limit of magnification of 50x. These limitations became obvious when we attempted to identify the offending material in the inflamed eye of a patient who complained of foreign body sensation after contact with a pet tarantula. As a model of this clinical situation, we used a newly developed tandem scanning confocal microscope… Expand
