Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report the outcome of phacoemulsification with toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in Alport syndrome with spontaneously ruptured capsule.

METHODS:

Case report and literature review.

RESULTS:

A 2.2-mm clear corneal phacoemulsification with toric lens implantation was done in anterior lenticonus with spontaneously ruptured anterior capsule. The toric IOL was well-centered with good visual outcome.

CONCLUSIONS:

Safe phacoemulsification with toric IOL implantation is possible in cases with spontaneous rupture of anterior lens capsule. Ability to achieve compact and complete capsulorhexis is one of the key steps to achieve favorable results.
