Abstract

This is a case report describing a planned routine cataract surgery that was complicated intraoperatively by breakage of the trailing haptic of the intraocular lens. The possibility of lens implantation despite the broken haptic is discussed, and the patient’s postoperative course one month after the surgery is described, in this report.
