Pseudoexfoliative material on the IOL surface and development of glaucoma after cataract surgery in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome



Pseudoexfoliative material on the IOL surface and development of glaucoma after cataract surgery in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome



Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery 33(10): 1815-1818



We report 4 cases of pseudoexfoliation syndrome in which pseudoexfoliative material appeared on the intraocular lens (IOL) surface and glaucoma developed more than 8 years after cataract surgery. The IOL haptic was located in the ciliary sulcus in 3 eyes and in the capsular bag in 1 eye. This report suggests that careful follow-up is essential to monitor the development of glaucoma in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome, particularly when an IOL is implanted in the sulcus.
