Severe photic phenomenon.

  • Published 2006 in Journal of cataract and refractive surgery


A 69-year-old man who had uneventful bilateral cataract surgery with visual acuity of 20/15 without correction presented with severe dysphotopsia. Treatment with brimonidine (Alphagan) or pilocarpine did not resolve the symptoms. A multipiece silicone intraocular lens was piggybacked into the sulcus, and the patient no longer reported dysphotopsia.
