Abstract Details

Purpose:

To report two cases of the double-layered anterior lens capsule during a conventional cataract surgery.

Setting:

Case reports / Dongguk University Ilsan hospital

Methods:

Two cases which showed a double-layered anterior lens capsule during the conventional cataract surgery were evaluated retrospectively.

Results:

A 76-year-old male and a 67-year-old female patients underwent the phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) insertion. There were no specific findings except moderate cataract in preoperative examinations. During the phacoemulsification and IOL insertion, a 'double ring sign' was observed in both cases. In second case, a radial tear in interotemporal quadrant was occurred. In both cases, IOL insertion was performed successfully and visual acuity recovery was obtained postoperatively without any complications.

Conclusions:

During the phacoemulsification and IOL insertion, we experienced the double-layered lens capsule in two cases. The �â�€�˜double-ring sign�â�€�™ may be considered as the specific finding of the double-layered lens capsule.
