How did you deal with this?

The barb looks inside the eye so you might not want to just pull it through the way it came.

Perhaps push the barb through pars plana??!

OMG. Did you save the eye? What happened?

Yeah, I saved the eye and used it as bait.

This wasn't my case, but in the couple of fishhook injuries I've operated on, I push the hook on through the eye so the barb comes out, cut the barb off, and then pull the rest of the hook out. Sew up all the holes, and the eye is back in business. Sort of. It's the type of injury that you want to avoid getting.

I'm giving up fishing for something softer,,,banana peeling sounds good. Hard to get a banana peel stuck in your eye.
