Corneal Foreign Body can be anything in the eye that does not wash out. A small piece of metal, wood or sand. The photo below shows a small rust ring where a metal piece was removed (at 8:00 o'clock). These need to be removed with a magnet or small needle. Depending on how deeply embedded the object is will determine how much scarring will result if any. Sometimes a antibiotic drop is prescribed to help the healing process and to keep other things from getting in and infecting the eye.

Below shows a couple of metallic pieces found in the eye. They were removed easily with a small spud and healed within 24 hours using an antibiotic drop.
