김무웅 ( Moo Woong Kim )
A contact lens suction cup glued at the outer rim of the surface with a radio-opaque thread which is (blue stained) available from the special surgical gauze is designed as a simplified device of the x-ray examination for detection of the intraocular foreign body. A combination of x-ray films (PA and lateral views) with double-exposure in different positions of the eye ball by means of this suction cup is used so that the intraocular foreign body can be visualized in different locations corresponding to the movement of the eye. Relatively accurate measurement of the location of foreign body, in addition to the differentiation of the intraocular object to the extraocular one, is possible instead of the other complicated contact lens apparatus. Clinical experiences with this method on the three ocular injury cases demonstrate fairly good results proved to be a practically applicable in diagnosis of the intraocular foreign body.
