A 47 year-old developed a painful right eye after hitting his face against the steering wheel during a road traffic accident. The cause of the pain was pupillary blocked glaucoma resulting from dislocation of the lens into the anterior chamber. He was admitted for IOP controlled. An ICCE was performed followed by an anterior chamber lens implant a few weeks later.
