Abstract

As one of the most severe forms of ocular trauma, open-globe injury (OGI) causes significant vision loss. Timely and meticulous repair of these injuries can improve patient outcomes. This video-based educational curriculum is intended to serve as a quick and efficient yet comprehensive reference for OGI repair. We hope that these video-based articles help surgeons and trainees from around the world find answers to specific surgical questions in OGI management. The curriculum has been divided into six separate review articles, each authored by a different set of authors, to facilitate a systematic and practical approach to the subject of wound types and repair techniques. The second article highlights the equipment and sterile preparation necessary to repair open-globe injuries. Because adequate visualization of open-globe wounds is crucial to ensure proper repair, we highlight techniques to aid in the visualization of corneal or scleral wounds with video examples of each.
