A Case of Pupillary Block in Pseudophakia

Harshitha Gogineni | Malleswari Medikonda [3]

Abstract: Angle closure in the eye with posterior chamber IOL is relatively uncommon, due to deepening of anterior chamber. We report a case of 50 year old female with history of cataract surgery in RE 10 months back. On examination of right eye, her anterior segment showed uniformly shallow anterior chamber with presence of posterior chamber IOL. Nd:YAG peripheral iridotomy deepened the anterior chamber in this case. The probable cause for pupillary block in this case is due to position of IOL which is in the ciliary sulcus. Secondary angle closure due to pupillary block requires timely management with Nd:YAG peripheral iridotomy.

Keywords: Pupillary block, Posterior chamber IOL, Secondary angle closure
