Intra-ocular lens opacification in the anterior chamber leading to loss of vision in an adolescent

, : Intra-ocular lens opacification in the anterior chamber leading to loss of vision in an adolescent. Nepalese Journal of Ophthalmology 6(11): 102-104

To report a rare case of intraocular lens (ACIOL) opacification in the anterior chamber in an adolescent and to discuss the possible mechanism of its occurrence and the ways of its prevention. A 16-year-old male underwent cataract surgery for developmental cataract with placement of a foldable posterior chamber IOL in the anterior chamber. There was subsequent opacification of the IOL, which was replaced by a scleral fixated posterior chamber intraocular lens. The post-operative visual acuity improved to 6/18. The posterior chamber IOL implanted in the anterior chamber can get opacified possibly due to postoperative intraocular inflammation.

The stability of adsorbed protein layers against deformation has in literature been attributed to the formation of a continuous gel-like network. This hypothesis is mostly based on measurements of the increase of the surface shear elasticity with...

In nitric-oxide synthases (NOSs), two flexible hinges connect the FMN domain to the rest of the enzyme and may guide its interactions with partner domains for electron transfer and catalysis. We investigated the role of the FMN-FAD/NADPH hinge in...
