ABSTRACT

We present the case of a 65-year-old woman with an aphakia after a cataract surgery at the right eye and a pseudophakia (anterior chamber lens) at the left eye. The two eyes received an intra-ocular lens with sclera fixing of posterior chamber combined with an anterior vitrectomy. An elevated intraocular pressure of 25 mmHg and severe ocular pains were observed immediately after the surgery on the right eye. The far visual acuity (FVA) increased from counting fingers at 5 m (before the surgery) to 9/10 after the surgery refraction in the right eye. At the left eye the FVA increased from counting fingers at 2 m to 6/10. The visual functional benefit of the two eyes was satisfactory.
