Abstract

Purpose:To report two cases who developed pupillary block glaucoma following lensectomy for congenital cataract. Case and Findings:Both were female babies. One received, at the age of 6 months, lensectomy and anterior vitrectomy for congenital cataract in the left eye followed by elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). The other case received, at the age of 3 months, lensectomy in both eyes followed by posterior capsulotomy and anterior vitrectomy one month later. The left eye developed elevated IOE Both affected eyes showed shallow anterior chamber and were diagnosed with pupillary block glaucoma. Topical medication failed to control the IOE Anterior vitrectomy was followed by deep anterior chamber and decreased IOP in both cases. Conclusion:These cases illustrate that pupillary block may develop after surgery for congenital cataract due to vitreous herniation.
