  Dear Editor:

  Sir, the recent published case report on corneal bee sting by Sedaghat et al is very interesting.1 Sedaghat et al concluded that “Bee sting can lead to serious visual impairment despite adequate medical and surgical approaches.1” Indeed, the arthropod sting on cornea is usually serious and difficult-to-manage case. Based on the experience on another similar situation, corneal wasp sting, it can be seen that although medical treatment cannot provide 100% success in management but it can provide satisfied outcome in case with early treatment.2 Management of corneal sting should use these concepts: a) early identification of the problem, b) management of inflammation reaction as early as possible, c) following up of the visual property of the patient and d) surgical approach in the worst case.
