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. 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.
