Retinal cases & brief reports 2017 09 27() doi 10.1097/ICB.0000000000000634
Abstract
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE
We report the first two cases of postoperative opacification of scleral-sutured Akreos AO60 intraocular lens after vitrectomy with the gas tamponade.

METHODS
Two patients with ectopia lentis underwent pars plana vitrectomy, pars plana lensectomy, and scleral fixation of an Akreos AO60 intraocular lens with Gore-Tex suture. Retinal breaks were noted during vitrectomy and consequently intravitreal gas tamponade was used after endolaser retinopexy. Postoperatively, both patients developed intraocular lens opacification but maintained excellent visual acuity; however, one patient developed bothersome though tolerable photophobia.

CONCLUSION
Although still an excellent option for the management of surgical aphakia in the absence of capsular support, caution should be taken when using a hydrophilic secondary intraocular lens, such as Akreos AO60, during vitreoretinal surgery if gas is required.
