A twenty-three year old man suffered a “ruptured” globe of the left eye after an assault. He did not present for medical care for 2 days, at which time emergent repair of a temporal limbo-scleral wound of the left eye was performed. The patient tolerated the procedure well. Visual acuity OS was 20/25, and intraocular pressure (IOP) was 8 mm Hg OS at post-op week #2. The patient did not return for follow-up for 3 months at which time he complained of a red, painful left eye, and photophobia.
