• A 76-year-old myopic woman who had undergone bilateral extracapsular cataract extractions and received posterior intraocular lens implants underwent two sessions of krypton laser photocoagulation for subretinal neovascularization secondary to age-related macular degeneration in her right eye. The patient expired and histopathologic examination of her treated eye showed a posterior chamber intraocular lens with both haptics in the ciliary sulcus, areas of macular degeneration, evidence of krypton laser photocoagulation including a full-thickness retinal scar, and an area of clinically unsuspected subretinal neovascularization.
