Bee-related eye injuries   
Two recent insect-related eye injuries.  The first one is a recent patient with a hyphema after the bee smacked him in the eye.

The next two photos were from a patient who was stung in the cornea by a bee; the patient notes that he is allergic to bee stings.  The stinger is visible paracentrally and there was dramatic corneal whitening and edema.  The second photo shows the healed cornea following removal.  Note:  I get no credit for the excellent result, WVU Corneal Service removed the stinger.
