  • Look Inside

 A 72-year-old woman had received cataract surgery with implantation of hydrogel intraocular lens(IOL)in her left eye 17months before and in her right eye 9months before. The IOL in her right eye was found to be opaque with the visual acuity down to 0.2. Another 62-year-old man had received cataract surgery with IOL implantation in his right eye 23months before. The IOL was found to be opaque with the visual acuity down to counting fingers. Both patients had diabetes mellitus. One had a past history of myocardial infarction. Energy-dispersive x-ray analysis(EDXA)and alizarin red staining showed opacification of IOL to be due to the calcification of the IOL.
