Case Study
An 18-year-old female patient was referred to our clinic with low vision in both eyes. She had been treated for Still-Chauffard syndrome since birth, had choric uveitis and underwent cataract surgery in young childhood; she was since left aphakic in both eyes. After bilateral implantation of Verisyse Aphakia phakic intraocular lense was done, her vision and quality of life improved dramatically over the course of one year.
