Refractive surprise following implantation of correct powered intraocular lens--a real surprise
International Ophthalmology, 07/17/2012
Ravi K et al. – The authors report a case of a 60–year–old male with unsatisfactory visual outcome following an uneventful phacoemulsification surgery for the left eye at the authors' hospital. The evaluation of his anterior segment revealed a clear cornea, a well–positioned in–the–bag intraocular lens (IOL) and normal posterior segment. This case highlights the rare possibility of postoperative refractory surprise due to incorrect labelling of the IOL by the manufacturer.
