  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 80-year-old male underwent self-sealing cataract surgery by 5.5mm incision with intraocular lens implantation in his right eye. He suffered blunt trauma to the head and the eye region when falling 3 months later. When seen by us, the anterior chamber was maintained and the prior surgical wound was closed. Vitreous surgery was performed for hyphema and vitreous hemorrhage. The lens capsule and the intraocular lens was intact but the iris was totally absent. It appeared that iris had prolapsed through the cataract wound followed by spontaneous closure of the wound.
