An 85-year-old male with one functioning eye presents with a red, hyper-mature cataract. In his right eye, he had a pre-operative uncorrected distance VA 20/50; uncorrected near VA 20/50. The patient reported cataract surgery in the left eye four years prior by another doctor. Complications ensued from a retained nuclear lens fragment, and additional surgery was performed by the same doctor a month later to remove the fragment. The patient stated that he developed secondary glaucoma as a result of an IOL “infection” resulting in blindness in the left eye. The following shows the removal of the cataract with the Catalys laser.
