A 70-year-old female who sustained blunt trauma, 17 years after manual small incision cataract surgery presented to us with globe rupture. Wound exploration revealed the presence of entire iris diaphragm along with 3-piece posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) in the subconjunctival space [Figure 1], [Figure 2], [Figure 3]. Even after several years, traumatic expulsion of iris tissue in toto along with PCIOL happened through the previous surgical scar.

  Conclusion Top


This case raises our concern on integrity and strength of self-sealing ophthalmic surgical wounds in general.
