Clear lens extraction and intraocular lens implantation in a case of microspherophakia with secondary angle closure glaucoma

Indian J Ophthalmol. 2010 Jan-Feb;58(1):67-70. doi: 10.4103/0301-4738.58477.

Abstract

Phacoemulsification with implantation of single-piece acrylic foldable intraocular lens (IOL) in a 19-year-old boy with microspherophakia, high myopia and angle closure glaucoma is described. The associated myopia and angle closure glaucoma was severely compromising the quality of life. Post-surgical visual recovery was 20/20 with sustained normal intraocular pressure. Management of such cases at times calls for innovations in current surgical technique.
