Despite significant advancements in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, traumatic cataracts still result in visual impairment. Prognostic factors for visual acuity recovery in young patients with penetrating ocular injury are dependent on duration of injury. Purpose This video explores how to cope with the care of a case of partially recovered traumatic cataract in a situation of an old and neglected penetrating injury. This case included a corneal scar, a ruptured anterior lens capsule, and the formation of a posterior synechiae between the iris and the lens capsule's posterior pigmented epithelium. An posterior synechiae are released by swiping a cyclodialysis spatula in the sulcus area prior to the installation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens in the sulcus. Highlights From this video, we tried to show how one can cope with phacoaspiration with intraocular lens implantation in a case of catastrophic cataract post penetrating injury in a sequence.
