We report a case in which a Malyugin ring was left in the eye for 1 week after phacoemulsification complicated by an intraoperative suprachoroidal hemorrhage. The suprachoroidal hemorrhage resolved within a few days. One week postoperatively, an intraocular lens was implanted in the capsular bag and the Malyugin ring was removed uneventfully. One month after the secondary procedure, the uncorrected distance visual acuity was 0.1 logMAR (6.0/7.5 Snellen). The case shows that a Malyugin ring can be left in the eye safely for a week in cases of intraoperative suprachoroidal hemorrhage.
