Phacoemulsification in spherophakia with corneal touch

Abstract [en]

A phacoemulsification procedure with implantation of a foldable acrylic intraocular lens in a 31-year-old man with spherophakia is described. The procedure was necessitated by anterior dislocation of the spherophakic lens, with corneal endothelial contact and development of central corneal edema. With a careful approach, the procedure was uneventful and the outcome successful. Modern small-incision cataract surgery techniques are of great benefit in this type of complicated case.
