We describe a case involving globe perforation after phacoemulsification in an eye with high axial myopia. Retinal and vitreous hemorrhages were seen. A retinal break was noted in the inferotemporal quadrant on indirect ophthalmoscopy. Barrage laser photocoagulation of the retinal break was done immediately, and antibiotic steroid eyedrops were started. The patient was followed until the hemorrhages cleared, after which cataract surgery was performed. The final corrected distance visual acuity was 6/9. In this case, the perforation was noted early and appropriate management was performed immediately. Early diagnosis and intervention are warranted in cases of iatrogenic globe perforation.
