Pediatric patients who undergo intraocular surgery are at risk for many of the same perioperative complications as adults. The same methodical approach to assessing perioperative shallowing of the anterior chamber that presents in the adult population should be followed for children. We present a rare case of intraoperative ciliary block in a 3-year-old boy undergoing a second glaucoma drainage device implantation that was successfully treated with pars plana vitrectomy and hyaloid-zonulo-iridectomy.
