  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

An 8-year-old girl suffered blunt trauma to the left eye while falling. The left lens showed posterior lenticonus with localized opacity in the posterior subcapsular polar area. She underwent cataract surgery one year later by phacoemulsifica-tion -aspiration and posterior intraocular lens implantation. During surgery, the posterior capsule was thin and weak but lacked discontinuity. It ruptured during conventional operative procedure but the intraocular lens could be fixed in the bag. Good corrected visual acuity is maintained at 9 months after surgery.
