    The video shows the meticulous repair of the corneoscleral tear along with management of the choroidal prolapse. The video demonstrates the steps to establish the anatomical integrity of the globe and tips to avoid suture bites through the choroid in a corneo-scleral tear repair. Identification of important landmarks helps in the establishment of anatomical integrity. Therefore, the limbal area of tear is first sutured with 10-O nylon. The extent of wound onto the sclera is checked on the other end of the tear. Second limbal suture at the opposite end of the tear is taken, followed by dividing the corneal extent of tear by rule of half and segmental suturing with 10-O nylon. Then conjunctival peritomy is done to explore the scleral extent and the uveal tissue prolapse. Blunt and atraumatic back tip of Weckel sponge is used perpendicular to the plane of the sclera to push the choroid back aiding the scleral bite. Sclera is sutured with 9-O nylon suture taking care not to include the choroidal tissue. Air injection is done to check for any wound leak. Side port is hydrated, and corneal sutures are buried. The conjunctiva is secured with fibrin glue. Anterior chamber is formed with air bubble. Povidone iodine is instilled and BCL placed. 1. Suturing the landmark areas first; 2. Exploring the extent of wound; 3. Segmental suturing of the cornea; 4. Pushing the choroid back to avoid bites through it while suturing sclera; 5. Air injection to check for wound leaks; 6. Anterior chamber formation with air at the end.
