Abstract

PURPOSE: To report a case of intraocular lens (IOL) glistening after uneventful cataract surgery and in-the-bag implantation of an enVista MX60 IOL (Bausch & Lomb, Rochester, NY) in a patient with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 76-year-old woman with non-insulin - dependent diabetes mellitus underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification with in-the-bag implantation of an enVista MX60 IOL. After 6 months, glistening formation within the IOL optic was observed. In the fellow pseudophakic eye, an acrylic hydrophilic Akreos Adapt AO IOL (Bausch & Lomb) was implanted without complications. CONCLUSIONS: IOL glistening can develop with the enVista MX60 IOL, even after uneventful cataract surgeries in certain situations (eg, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus). Increased vascular permeability due to uncontrolled diabetes mellitus might have been responsible for the postoperative IOL glistening formation.
