Purpose : To report clinical and pathological features of three cases of opacification with hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs)

Case reports : In this interventional case report, we introduce the surgical and laboratory information about three hydrophilic acrylic IOLs which calcified after implantation for these patients with cataract. These lenses were explanted and analyzed with optical microscopy and pathological evaluation.

Results : Microscopic analyses showed granular deposits and pathological evaluation revealed deposition of calcium crystals.

Conclusion : Pathologic analyses of explanted IOLs revealed that late opacification of hydrophilic acrylic IOLs are the result of calcification. Patient related factors might have been responsible for this complication.
