Epithelial Inclusion Cyst 2

This 25 year old man was struck in the right eye with a screwdriver 6 years before this video was taken. His visual acuity was light perception. He has had a normal intraocular pressure and as can be seen a dense white cataract as well as a small clear cyst in the anterior chamber. The patient had the lens and epithelial cyst removed with placement of a posterior chamber intraocular lens. When he was last seen, 9 months after his surgery he refracted to 20/20 and had no evidence of recurrence of the cyst, which had been removed intact.
