An 80-year-old man presented with a Zone I-II open globe injury of the left eye from a metal chair clip. The corneal laceration was complex and stellate. Following repair, the patient developed a corneal ulcer related to loose sutures. He was treated with topical antibiotics, and although the infection resolved, he was left with a large corneal scar, ultimately requiring penetrating keratoplasty. In this patient, the development of a corneal infection around loose sutures was likely a result of the difficult-to-close complex stellate wound.
