Dengue is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease in humans. It has now become a major public health problem in India. Various ophthalmic manifestations are seen in dengue. Globe rupture is a very rare complication. Ophthalmologists should be aware of this complication, to suspect and intervene early in the clinical course. We report three cases of spontaneous globe rupture presented to our emergency department following dengue. This is the largest case report on the subject till date.
