PURPOSE: To repair iridodialysis in a traumatized eye with minimal surgical manipulation. METHODS: We examined a patient with traumatic iridodialysis. The separated iris obstructed the visual axis and was cosmetically disfiguring. RESULTS: At surgery we secured the iridodialysis to the anterior chamber angle by using a new technique with double-armed McCannell suture. CONCLUSION: Compared with other procedures, this technique is simple and provides the least amount of ocular manipulation for iridodialysis repair.
