Abstract

We report a calcified cataractous lens in a 24-year-old man who had retinal degeneration in the right eye since childhood. The visual acuity had dropped to light perception. Clear corneal phacoemulsification was performed, and the shell of a 5.4 mm × 4.0 mm × 2.0 mm calcified substance was removed with a forceps using the can-opener technique. The specimen was analyzed using radiological study, histopathological examination, chemical element analysis, and transmission electron microscopy. Four years postoperatively, the patient's visual acuity was 20/200.
