Abstract

This case report describes the optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings and clinical management of a patient with traumatic subluxed cataract. The patient presented with a traumatic subluxed cataract and vitreous prolapse into the anterior chamber. The anterior segment OCT showed vacuoles in the anterior subcapsular regions of the crystalline lens. The patient was treated with pars plana lensectomy, vitrectomy, and placement of an anterior chamber intraocular lens. The patient's best corrected visual acuity improved from hand motion at presentation to 20/25 during 3 years of follow-up. Anterior segment OCT demonstrates that the clinically visible vacuoles in traumatic cataract are located in the anterior subcapsular part of the lens. This is the first report in the literature using anterior segment OCT to visualize the subcapsular vacuolar changes in a traumatic cataract.
