A woman in her 70s with a history of diabetes mellitus and hypertension presented to the clinic with an 8-day history of worsening pain and redness of the right eye. Two years prior to presentation, the patient had undergone a complicated cataract surgery and anterior chamber lens implant in the right eye performed in Mexico. In addition to eye pain, she reported decreased vision of the right eye for several months. She had undergone a giant cell arteritis workup and a computed tomographic scan of the orbits; both were negative.
