Abstract

Bee sting injuries to the eye are relatively uncommon. The outcomes of corneal bee sting injuries are highly variable, and there is no consensus on the management at the time of initial presentation. We report a case of a 17-year-old male with a corneal bee sting injury that significantly improved in the acute stage without any treatment, which to the best of our knowledge is the first report in the literature documenting the natural history of a corneal bee sting injury in the acute stage.
