Abstract

A 46-year-old white male patient had right eye cataract surgery 3 years ago with a hydrophobic single-piece intra ocular lens (IOL) (AcrySof SN60WF, Alcon labs). Since then he reported recurrent episodes of blurred vision, severe ocular pain and headache. The secondary dispersion syndrome with secondary pigmentary glaucoma was controlled by a 3-piece hydrophobic acrylic IOL exchange (AcrySof MA60AC, Alcon labs). The episodes of blurred vision and recurrent iritis disappeared completely and the IOP returned to normal levels without therapy.
