Eight weeks after intracapsular cataract extraction with implantation of a Binkhorst iris-clip lens joined with a suture to a peripheral iridectomy at the 12 o'clock position, a 52-year-old woman struck the right side of her head. The corneoscleral wound ruptured for three fourths of its length and the artificial lens was located in the subconjunctiva in the superiornasal quadrant of the eye. The lens was removed, the iris reposited, and the anterior chamber reformed, and the wound resutured. Her vision was 6 12 ( 20 40) at the time of discharge.
