A 28-YEAR-OLD man was struck in his right eye by a tree branch in 1986,
resulting in a corneal laceration and a traumatic cataract. Extracapsular
cataract extraction was performed in November 1986, and he achieved a visual
acuity of 20/20 OD (+16.00 soft contact lens). The patient was initially examined
at the Cullen Eye Institute, Houston, Tex, in August 1989. Visual acuity was
20/20 OD (+11.50 +0.25 × 30) and 20/15 OS (uncorrected). Slitlamp examination
in the right eye revealed a 1-mm, paracentral, linear, full-thickness corneal
scar and posterior capsular and cortical lens remnants with adherent iris
pigment posterior to the iris at the 6-o'clock position. The remainder of
the examination was otherwise normal in both eyes.
