Abstract A 35-year-old woman with zonular weakness in the left eye had phacoemulsification with inthe- bag implantation of an acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) and a capsular tension ring. 6 months postoperatively, the patient developed significant visual loss secondary to capsule shrinkage and contraction of the capsulorhexis opening, associated to a slight IOL decentration. Neodymium: YAG laser radial anterior capsulotomy and anterior capsulectomy were performed leading to visual acuity restoration.
