A 56-year-old male developed sudden pain in the right eye and vision loss. The patient had no prior trauma or surgery and he had 20/20 vision in the left eye. He was referred for angle closure with vitreous in the anterior chamber.
The intraocular pressure was extremely elevated at IOP 56mmHg, treated down to 23mmHg on four medication classes. The patient was hoping for a quick recovery to return to work.
The objective of the surgery was to manage the dislocated cataract to achieve a long-term good result without having a lens dislocation in the future.
For the pre-operative assessment, intraoperative OCT scans revealed a tuft of vitreous in the anterior chamber and a severely tilted lens. There was no sulcus space on one side and the other side was hyper deep behind the iris, where the vitreous was coming around. The lens was very mobile, and the angle would open when the patient would lay back.
