Intraorbital foreign body with intracranial extension is a potentially devastating condition leading to blindness and even death in certain circumstances. Lot of controversies still exist regarding the most appropriate approach for removal of orbital foreign body with intracranial extension. In this paper we have discussed a series of 3 cases where the foreign body was removed through the anterior (transorbital) approach.
