This eye has a small piece of lens nucleus sitting in the bottom of the anterior chamber after successful phaco cataract extraction. This usually occurs when a piece of the hard nucleus gets stuck in the angle and isn’t seen in surgery because of dense arcus or corneal edema (especially sub-incisionally).
This nuclear fragment eventually absorbed without requiring an AC washout, though the eye did require a more prolonged course of steroid. The end visual result was still excellent without corneal decompensation.
