Arch Ophthalmol. 2000;118(9):1302-1303. doi:10.1001/archopht.118.9.1302

A 77-YEAR-OLD Hispanic woman had decreased vision in both eyes following sequential bilateral cataract surgery at an outside institution. According to her medical records, she had undergone uncomplicated clear corneal cataract surgery in both eyes, 1 month apart. She had normal postoperative visual acuity and slitlamp examination results. Over the next several weeks, she noted a gradual and painless decline in vision in each eye successively. She was unable to obtain any follow-up during this time because of her moving to a new residence.
