A 68-year-old male with a history of gunshot injury in the right eye 30 years back was presented with a complaint of blurring of vision in the right eye. His visual acuity was 20/80 OD and 20/320 OS. A slit-lamp examination revealed superior and supero-temporal ciliary staphyloma with uveal tissue covered with conjunctiva in the right eye. [Figure 1] Both eyes had nuclear sclerosis grade 3 cataract. In the right eye, phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation with endocapsular tension ring and scleral patch graft if needed were planned. Clear corneal temporal phacoemulsification with acrylic foldable single-piece intraocular lens was performed. The surgery was uneventful and the scleral patch graft was deferred. After 1 month, his vision in the right eye was 20/20. Ciliary staphyloma 60 years after the firework injury was reported previously.[1] In cases with ciliary and intercalary staphyloma, clear corneal phacoemulsification can be performed. The donor sclera should be kept in reserve for a scleral patch graft in the case of globe rupture.
