Abstract

Iridodialysis needs to be repaired if it is symptomatic. We describe a new bimanual technique for repair of iridodialysis where a bent 26 gauge (G) needle is used to lift the peripheral iris first. The bevel of the needle then acts as a platform for the 9-0 prolene suture with a straight needle to enable unfolding of the curled up iris by stroking before finally docking the suture needle into the bevel of the 26 G needle. This technique ensures precise scleral fixation.
