We present the case of a 65-year-old woman with an aphakia after a
cataract surgery at the right eye and a pseudophakia (anterior chamber lens) at
the left eye. The two eyes received an intra-ocular lens with sclera fixing of
posterior chamber combined with an anterior vitrectomy. An elevated intraocular
pressure of 25 mmHg and severe ocular pains were observed immediately after the
surgery on the right eye. The far visual acuity (FVA) increased from counting
fingers at 5 m (before the surgery) to 9/10 after the surgery refraction in the
right eye. At the left eye the FVA increased from counting fingers at 2 m to
6/10. The visual functional benefit of the two eyes was satisfactory.
