• We report the development of pseudophakic bullous keratopathy in 18 eyes following implantation of Pharmacia Intermedics Ophthalmics model 024 (Hessburg) anterior chamber intraocular lenses. Eight of these intraocular lenses were implanted during uncomplicated intracapsular cataract extractions. Mean onset of corneal edema was 21.4 months after lens implantation. Patients with this type of lens already implanted in their eyes require close follow-up for complications.
