Abstract

This report describes the implantation of a standard posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) in a patient with bilateral cataract and anterior megalophthalmos. After extracapsular cataract extraction, the IOL was sutured to the posterior surface of the iris and anterior capsule. Different types of IOLs were used in each eye, and the surgical technique was adapted to the characteristics of the IOL. No complications were noted. Visual rehabilitation was successful. Extracapsular cataract extraction with a posterior chamber IOL sutured to the posterior surface of the iris and anterior capsule is a useful option in patients with anterior megalophthalmos and cataract.
