Abstract

PURPOSE/METHODS: We examined an infant with familial cataracts in whom bilateral open-angle glaucoma developed shortly after pars plicata lensectomy with anterior vitrectomy. RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: Some eyes with congenital nuclear cataracts have a predisposition to develop glaucoma after removal of the cataract, which is irrespective of the method chosen to remove the cataract. Careful monitoring of the intraocular pressure is indicated.
