This man who had a poorly dilated right pupil (due to previous attack of acute angle closure glaucoma) underwent an uneventful phacoemulsification and implant. His vision was 6/12 unaided on the first post-operative day. However, the vision decreased to 6/24 when reviewed two weeks later. Slit-lamp examination showed the pupil was partially occluded by a piece of cortex. YAG capsulotomy was performed to improve the vision.
