To report the clinical aspects and the imaging of a patient with intrastromal glass foreign bodies after a road traffic accident using both anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ocular Pentacam. A detailed case report was made of the use of anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT) and ocular Pentacam to evaluate intrastromal foreign bodies. AS-OCT and Pentacam were valuable non-invasive tools in identification, localization and monitoring patients with intrastromal foreign bodies. This report demonstrates that AS-OCT and ocular Pentacam are effective and necessary procedures for both the diagnosis and follow-up of intracorneal foreign bodies.
