Removal of 3-Pronged Barbed Fishhook

To remove the 3-pronged barbed fishhook using the cut-and-push-through technique, the contaminated lure is cut before transferring the patient to the operating room. The anterior chamber is inflated with viscoelastic, and the exit wound is fashioned to rotate out the barbed fishhook lodged in the anterior chamber. The barbed prong of the fishhook lodged in the lower eyelid is dissected using blunt Westcott scissors and then removed.
