TA is a 56-year-old man who complained of a gradual distortion of the vision in his right eye over the past several months. Examination found vision in his right eye of 20/20 and in the left eye of 20/70 with his current glasses. Refraction documented an increased astigmatism of four diopters at an axis of 60°. Slit-lamp examination initially appeared unremarkable, but after dilation of the pupils, a sectorial cataract at 2:00 was noted. Fundus examination was unremarkable but the cataract blocked an adequate view of the peripheral retina and ciliary body.
