Penetrating ocular trauma is an important cause of visual loss in young adults. The fate of the traumatized eye depends upon the treatment adopted, with early reporting and appropriate surgical management reducing the visual loss. However, sometimes even after the best of surgical interventions these patients may develop various vision-threatening complications. Here, we report a patient who presented with a large corneosclera laceration which was successfully repaired as an emergency procedure. However, subsequently he developed an inflammatory hypopyon which was successfully managed, only to go ahead and hurt his affected eye yet again and develop an anterior chamber (AC) leak. This too was managed successfully and finally this patient could be discharged with an absolutely normal vision.
