• A modified tip for the Bronson intraocular electromagnet has been developed. The tip was machined to a 20-gauge cylinder that can be inserted readily into the eye either through an entrance wound or through a pars plana incision. Placement of the tip of the magnet inside the eye allows the foreign body to impact the tip of the magnet rather than the wall of the eye.
