    The procedure presented here is for iridodialysis repair using an elegant, cost-effective and quick technique using 6-0 Prolene sutures, low-temperature electrocautery, and a 27-gauge needle. Previously, all methods required performing a conjunctival peritomy to expose bare sclera, then typically intricate movements and knot tying. In this video, Dr. Eric Rosenberg and colleagues describe a method combining the sewing machine technique and a modified Yamane scleral fixation technique to treat iridodialysis that requires no knots, peritomies or specialized equipment.
