This film will review the management of ophthalmia nodosa. We will show photos and video of the removal of caterpillae setae from our patient's cornea. The resulting foreign bodies are difficult to remove, because the tiny setae have angled barbs along the shafts which make simple removal with forceps or with a needle quite difficult. We will describe one technique for easier removal, by turning the setae around with a needle prior to removal with a jewelers forceps.
