Abstract

We present the case of a 54-year-old male with deterioration of vision in the right eye. CME due to non-infectious, intermediate uveitis was diagnosed. The patient was treated with an intravitreal ozurdex implant that was inadvertently injected into the lens. The lens remained transparent for 8 months, but high, uncontrolled intra-ocular pressure and posterior sub-capsular cataract developed. The patient underwent phacoemulsification cataract surgery, posterior capsulotomy and anterior vitrectomy. An IOL was implanted in the bag.
