Morgagnian cataract.

Abstract Cataract is a total or partial clouding of the lens of the eye. It can be congenital or acquired. Cataract associated with the aging process (senile) is the most common type. Common symptoms include visual impairment which varies based on the type and the density of lens opacity. Cataracts etiology is varied and treatment is based on surgery. In patients with morgagnian cataract cortex liquefies and lens core hardens and becomes cloudy. We here report the case of a 51-year old patient with no notable medical history presenting with progressive decreased visual acuity in the left eye with no pain or redness of the eye associated. Ophthalmologic examination showed visual acuity (the individual can see hand movement), clear cornea, normal anterior chamber depth, an intraocular pressure of 15 mmgh and morgagnian cataract. The patient underwent phacoemulsification cataract surgery with implantation within the capsular bag. Post-operative suites were simple.
