Phacoemulsification in this patient was complicated by posterior capsule rupture which required anterior vitrectomy. Consequently, the intraocular lens was placed in the sulcus. Post-operatively, the refraction was more myopic than expected because the image was focused more anteriorly. The myopia could have been reduced by using an intraocular lens with a lower power from that calculated preoperatively (typically by 0.5D).
