Abstract

A 5-year-old girl had hypotony, myopia, and anterior displacement of the lens-iris diaphragm following routine strabismus surgery. This constellation of findings suggests that surgical manipulation of the intact sclera produced a limited effusion involving the supraciliary space. Following cycloplegia, these findings resolved over several weeks, suggesting that this rare complication is self-limited and associated with a good prognosis for recovery.
