Retinal Injury from Light Pipe

DOI: 10.3207/2989146344

Unexperienced surgeons must permanently observe both instruments in the eye, if not, both instruments must be removed. In this case the resident is so diverted by a first successful ILM peeling that on removing the forceps uncontrolled movement of the light pipe – still in the eye  - ends up in a retinal hole inferior to the macula. No noticeable functional  loss remained. The procedure was completed as planned by fluid gas exchange for macular hole.
