Authors


Abstract

Herein a case is reported of a full-thickness scleral burn in the left eye of a 61-year-old man, following contact trans-scleral cyclodiode laser treatment for traumatic aphakic glaucoma, unresponsive to maximal medical treatment. The defect was successfully repaired by scleral suturing under local anaesthetic.
