    This case represents the first report of Acremonium strictum endophthalmitis. Endophthalmitis caused by A. strictum may share clinical features typical of endophthalmitis due to Propionibacterium acnes (such as delayed onset of the infection and white plaque-like material in the capsular bag).

    Ten days after cataract extraction with phacoemulsification and in-the-bag acrylic intraocular lens implantation, capsular block syndrome developed in the right eye of a 62-year-old man. Aspiration of the swollen cortical remnants resulted in resolution of the capsular block.

    We describe a technique to manage late spontaneous intraocular lens (IOL) and capsular tension ring (CTR) dislocation within the intact capsular bag. The subluxated IOL and CTR complex can be positioned in a closed chamber and fixed to the pars plana at both 3 and 9 o'clock quadrants with the...
