Eroded Haptic

This patient is an 86-year-old man who has had glaucoma for 20 years. This eye had an extracapsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber lens done 23 years before this video was taken. This eroded haptic into the anterior chamber was an incidental finding on gonioscopy and has caused him no difficulties whatsoever.
