Luxation of the eyeball is a rare clinical entity that may present spontaneously or more commonly following trauma, but it carries a risk of threat to permanent vision loss. Appropriate intervention should be undertaken instantly. Prompt reduction results in restoration of full anatomical, functional, and visual recovery in otherwise healthy eyes. We report a case of globe luxation following trauma by the brake handle of a two-wheeler in a 12-year-old female, who recovered completely after reposition of the globe using Desmarres Lid Retractors.
