Abstract Details


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


Case reports / Dongguk University Ilsan hospital


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


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.


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.
