Abstract: We report a case of traumatic globe rupture following blunt trauma in the left eye of a 20-year-old male who had undergone deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for keratonus. Prolapse of both, the crystalline lens and the vitreous was present through the inferior 180 degrees donor host junction. After repositioning, anterior vitrectomy and repair of graft host junction, the graft regained clarity in eight weeks and there was good visual recovery.
