In brief: Surgically.
Small objects that are behind or deep in the eye are removed surgically.
If the object is behind the eye, the surgeon may only need to use operating loupes (special magnifying glasses) and take down the conjunctiva, secure an extraocular muscle and expose the object to remove it. If the object is deep in the eye he will use a microscope and special vitreous surgery equipment and instruments.
