Iris Bombe Around Intraocular Lens Implant

TA is a 62-year-old diabetic with a history of proliferative retinopathy. His right eye had become phthisical after unsuccessful retinal detachment surgery and the vision in his left eye had gradually decreased to the 20/200 level due to a combination of macular pathology and cataract formation. He underwent cataract surgery with the implantation of an anterior chamber intraocular lens implant (IOL) because of zonular dehiscence secondary to previous vitrectomy. His visual acuity improved to the 20/60 level, but he awoke on a Friday morning with a severe headache and marked reduction of his vision.
