Broken semiflexible intraocular lens implant

, : Broken semiflexible intraocular lens implant. American Journal of Ophthalmology 99(2): 170-172

The haptic of a semiflexible anterior chamber intraocular lens (Kelman Quadraflex) broke inside the eye of a 70-yr-old man. No history of major eye or head trauma could be elicited from the patient. Clinical manifestations included inferior corneal edema progressing toward the optical axis resulting from a free-floating haptic segment of the lens implant inside the anterior chamber. A significant decrease in endothelial density was documented over a short period of time. The surgical management of this case included removal of the free-floating haptic segment, removal of the lens implant, penetrating keratoplasty and vitrectomy. Final visual acuity was 20/70.
