An 80-year-old woman with corticonuclear cataract had cataract extraction by bimanual microphacoemulsification and in-the-bag implantation of the Akreos MI60 (Bausch & Lomb) intraocular lens (IOL). After 6 months, a complete capsulorhexis phimosis developed and surgery was performed to open and reduce the phimosis, with complete functional recovery. In the fellow pseudophakic eye, an acrylic hydrophobic Acri.Smart 48S (Acri.Tec) IOL had been implanted without complications. We conclude that a capsulorhexis phimosis may occur a few months after uneventful cataract surgery and in-the-bag implantation of the Akreos MI60 IOL.
