Purpose: To evaluate the complications of scleral perforation during strabismus surgery and the role of cryopexy, laser therapy, and conservative management in an animal model.

Methods: In this experimental study, 42 pigmented-eye rabbits were included. An S-24 needle attached to a 6-0 polyglactin suture was passed through the sclera and into the vitreous cavity in both eyes of the animals. One eye of the rabbits received either laser therapy (n=20) or cryopexy (n=22) and the fellow eyes were left untreated (n=42). The incidence of complications was compared between the three groups.

Results: Cataracts developed in 7 (8.3%) eyes. Corneal opacity and transient localized sub-retinal fluid around the break were observed in one (1.2%) eye each. Other complications such as endophthalmitis and retinal detachment were not seen. There was no significant difference between the study groups in terms of complications.

Conclusion: Vision-threatening complications following scleral perforation during strabismus surgery are uncommon and long-term follow-up is sufficient for management of this complication.

Keywords: Strabismus, Cryopexy, Laser Therapy, Scleral Perforation.
