We report a rare case of ocular siderosis with delayed-onset secondary glaucoma occurring 10 years after cataract and iron foreign body removal. CASE SUMMARY: A 47-year-old male who suffered an ocular injury with an iron material to his left eye 3 years prior to his initial visit was treated in our clinic for a cataract with siderosis lentis. Ten years after he underwent cataract surgery he developed secondary open-angle glaucoma. Trabecular block taken during trabeculectomy showed no iron material, however, a fibrosclerotic change was observed. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with a history of traumatic siderosis lentis, a potential risk of siderosis remains for a long period.
