• Ocular hypotony associated with detachment of the ciliary body without evident cyclodialysis has been corrected by reattachment of the ciliary body to the sclera. This was achieved by suturing the ciliary body to sclera under microscopic control. It would seem that prolonged hypotony of this type can be cured by this method.
