1/2. phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in an Alport's syndrome patient with bilateral anterior and posterior lenticonus.

    We report a case of intraocular lens (IOL) implantation with a continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification in a 30-year-old man manifesting anterior and posterior lenticonus. The surgery was uneventful and on follow-up, the IOL was well centered in the bag.

2/2. Clear lens extraction and intraocular lens implantation in a patient with bilateral anterior lenticonus secondary to Alport's syndrome.

    We describe bilateral phacoemulsification and implantation of foldable silicone intraocular lenses in a 25-year-old woman with Alport's syndrome and severe anterior lenticonus. Contrary to previous reports of lens capsule fragility in Alport's syndrome, this patient had relatively tough capsules, as do most patients her age. Apart from the tough capsules and positive pressure, which required the use of a viscoelastic to maintain the anterior chamber, the surgeries were unremarkable. The patient achieved excellent visual and refractive results.
