Adequate exposure of the sclera during posterior ruptured globe repair remains challenging because the globe traction required for direct visualization of the posterior laceration may result in expulsion of intraocular contents through the scleral wound. The authors describe a new technique for indirect visualization of the posterior sclera that allows for meticulous exploration and repair of posterior globe lacerations, while minimizing the need for globe traction and risk of intraocular content loss.
