Abstract

Inadvertent scleral perforation during cataract surgery is not a common but a serious complication of retrobulbar anesthesia. The majority of cataract surgeries in adults is performed under retrobulber, peribulbar or topical anesthesia. The high myopia is a risk factor for scleral perforation during peribulbar or retrobulbar anesthesia. In this case sclera was perforated during retrobulbar anesthesia and we present management and follow-up from baseline to 41 months.

Keywords: Inadvertent scleral perforation; Retinal detachment; High myopia; Clear lens Extraction; Laser photocoagulation
