Case report: A 35-year-old man with degenerative myopia suffered blunt ocular trauma due to being hit in the face by a ball. The injury caused four cyclodialysis clefts in his left eye which resulted in hypotony and chorioretinal folds. Discussion: The persisting hypotony was unsuccessfully treated with topical therapy and with laser photocoagulation. Therefore, a surgical treatment with direct cyclopexy was performed. In one of the cyclodialysis clefts, incarcerated vitreous was found, and this was considered to be the reason for its incomplete closure. In the postoperative period complete closure of the cyclodialysis cleft was observed; however an unexpected filtering bleb appeared, which could have affected good control of intraocular pressure.
