Background and Purpose: The opacification of Akreos Adapt (Bausch & Lomb, Rochester; NY) intraocular lens (IOL) has been previously reported in Literature. A metabolic change in aqueous humour was considered as the main trigger factor to IOL opacification. We report our case and discuss the association with Ex-PRESS, highlighting the particular pattern of IOL opacification and its possible relation with the intraocular convective motions of the aqueous. Material and Methods: We analyzed our case using both digital slit lamp acquisition and OCT Visante (Zeiss, Germany) images. A literature review was conducted to evaluate our results with that previously reported. Conclusion: The role of a relative stationary flow was reported as suggested concurrent mechanism in IOL opacification phenomenon.
