• A white ridge that resembled an inverted snowbank and protruded into the anterior chamber from the region of the internal lips of the cataract incision was visualized gonioscopically during and after cataract operation. Its clinical appearance and course are delineated and documented, and its importance in relation to the formation of postoperative peripheral anterior synechiae, vitreous adhesions, and hyphemas is discussed.
