Silicone oil infusion is a frequently used modality for intraocular tamponade in various vitreoretinal surgeries. This surgical tool is by and large safe and effective but is associated with various complications like raised intraocular pressure (IOP), cataract, deterioration of vision due to emulsification of oil etc. especially if retained for longer periods. We would like to report a case of a young male who underwent surgery for retinal detachment with silicone oil used as endo-tamponade, who presented with a painful blind right eye due to a rare complication of ciliary staphyloma secondary to raised IOP after being lost to follow up with silicone oil in situ due to COVID 19 pandemic. We present an unconventional approach of managing this complication by opting for filtering surgeries to lower IOP before going for more destructive procedures.
