Abstract

We report a 60-year-old man with bilateral nuclear cataract and −14.0 diopters index myopia. Following uncomplicated phacoemulsifications and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantations on both eyes, right and left axial lengths were 22.58 and 22.60 mm with otobiomeric A-scan ultrasound, respectively. Three-month corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye with a −1.00×130° cylinder and 20/20 in the left eye with −0.50 spheres and −1.00×100° cylinders.
