Abstract

Two patients with anterior polar cataracts had bilateral cataract extractions. Three of the four extractions were extracapsular, and the anterior pole detached from the remainder of the lens in two eyes. In one eye, the pole of the lens was left in the anterior chamber, and this patient has had recurrent spontaneous hyphemas. Anterior polar cataracts appear to have weak capsules, and great care should be exercised during their extraction.
