Cyclodialysis clefts are rare. The most common reason for presentation is blunt ocular trauma followed by various iatrogenic interventions. Although gonioscopy is the gold standard technique, diagnosis is particularly challenging, and various noninvasive techniques such as ultrasound biomicroscopy and the newer anterior segment swept-source optical coherence tomography have been found effective. The management of cyclodialysis clefts should be conservative initially followed by a variety of nonsurgical and surgical modalities to achieve closure. In this article, we report the most recent developments in the diagnosis and surgical and nonsurgical treatment strategies of cyclodialysis cleft. An extensive literature search was done using PubMed and Google Scholar with the search terms such as cyclodialysis cleft, ocular hypotony, hypotony maculopathy, cyclopexy, and cyclotamponade.
