AN INTUMESCENT WHITE CATARACT AND FOREIGN BODY

By Michael Snyder, MD

eyetube.net/?v=gorul.

A healthy 33-year-old man with no prior ocular history was referred with a 6-week history of markedly reduced vision in his left eye. Slit-lamp examination showed a white and quiet eye with a clear cornea and a 1-mm, healed, shelved corneal laceration below the corneal dome with scarring of indeterminate age. An intralenticular foreign body near the posterior aspect of the 6.25-mm thick lens was found on ultrasound biomicroscopy. Had the foreign body not been discovered, intraocular surgical maneuvers could have resulted in a poor outcome.
