    Open globe injury is a serious sight threatening condition. Full-thickness, non-selfsealing corneal lacerations require repair in the operating room. During repair, debridement of the wound is an important step. Incarceration of the intraocular structures in the wound eg. Iris, lens capsule, vitreous leads to improper healing if not removed properly. To demonstrate the technique of wound debridement in open globe injury. : Manual removal of incarcerated tissue contents leads to incomplete cleaning & enormous traction on intra ocular contents. In this video, we have tried vitrectomy cutter with higher vacuum for cleaning the edges of the wound especially in the posterior aspect and debri removal, followed by easy suturing. All tissue in the wound edges are removed effectively without any traction on intraocular contents. : Vitrectomy cutter is a very useful and effective tool to clean wound edges and good apposition & suturing of wound.
