1. OCT Imaging of Capsular Block Syndrome With Crystalline Cortical Remnants in the Capsular Bag

    A 72-year-old woman with cataract had phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in the capsular bag with continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis in the right eye. One day postoperatively, cortical remnants were noted between the posterior capsule and the intraocular lens optic located inferiorly. Uncorrected visual acuity was 1.0 and the patient was emmetropic. At a control visit 6 years postoperatively, the patient showed a hyperopic shift compared with the refraction of the first postoperative period with a best-corrected visual acuity of 0.4. A transparent liquefied substance that accumulated between the lens optic and the fibrotic capsule and surrounding the residual ...
