Ocular trauma suffered 30 years ago has left this young man with a calcified and partially resorbed cataract, advanced phacolytic glaucoma and complete absence of zonular support. Completing our 3-part

Pseudoexfoliation, zonular laxity, poor dilation, a shallow anterior chamber and a convex anterior capsule are all present in this 85 year old patient.
