A 24-year old man presented to the Policlinic with severe visual impairment in his left eye. The patient had been treated earlier with Iodine-125 brachytherapy due to iris melanoma. Clinical examination revealed low visual acuity, iltration device, iris atrophy, posterior synachiae and completely white cataract. Ultrasonography revealed scleral thinning with no signs of retinal detachment. The patient underwent synechiolysis, trypan blue capsule staining, phacoemulsiication and implantation of 23D intraocular lens Alcon AcrySof (MA60BM). Phacoemulsiication went uneventful and early postoperative recovery was successful. Visual acuity improved to 0,2 and fundus examination revealed radiation retinopathy with diffuse retinal scaring.
