abstract

  • We report a case of a new syndrome, late asymmetric vault of the AT45 Crystalens intraocular lens (IOL) (Eyeonics Inc.). The late vault, which occurred in 6 month after implantation of the IOL, caused a decrease in uncorrected distance and near acuities and minus-cylinder axis perpendicular to the haptics. Treatment with neodymium:YAG laser capsulotomy and fibrotic band release was successful.
