Abstract

A 23-year-old woman with -14.00 diopters of myopia requested emmetropia for professional reasons. An ICM 130 V2 myopic phakic intraocular lens (IOL) (Staar Surgical AG) was implanted in the posterior chamber. Three days later, the patient developed malignant glaucoma. Pupillary block glaucoma and choroidal hemorrhage or effusion were ruled out. As maximum medical treatment failed, rapid secondary surgery was performed with sclerotomy, aspiration in the midvitreous cavity, and removal of the IOL. The follow-up was 43 months.
