Earlier, Ekaterina Demyanovskaya, a neurologist, candidate of medical sciences, explained in an interview with RT that in rare cases, a foreign body in the eye can really not manifest itself for a long time.
According to the Ministry of Health of the Moscow Region, a 26-year-old man turned to the ophthalmology department of the Moscow Regional Hospital named after Rozanov with a request to remove a bullet from his left eye.
It is noted that the injury was received almost six years ago as a result of careless handling of pneumatic weapons. At the same time, all these years, the foreign body did not bother the patient in any way.
