Ocular perforation during retinal reattachment surgery is very uncommon intraoperative complication.If globe rupture occurs, intraocular fluid leakage, ocular hypotony, and vitreous hemorrhage follow. Authors made an intraoperative ocular perforation inadvertently by scleral depressor on our patient who had a recurrent retinal detachment on his right eye. However, immediate scleral suture of the ruptured wound and balanced salt solution injection by pars plana route, and effective scleral exoplant maintained his retina anatomically flat. So, we present the case with a brief literatures review.
Key Words: Ocular perforation;Recurrent retinal detachment
