A 61-year-old patient reported with blurred vision in the right eye for 1 year, with no remarkable systemic illness. The right eye was pseudophakic with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) 6/9, N6, operated 3 years back elsewhere. On slit-lamp examination, white opalescent foldable intraocular lens (IOL) was noted in the bag [Figure 1]. Posterior segment was seen very hazily; ultrasound was done which was normal. A diagnosis of opacification of IOL was made.
Various types of optic opacification have been reported. Histopathological studies have shown the presence of calcium granules. It is important to differentiate IOL opacification from posterior capsule opacification for proper management.
