Methods: A generally healthy 49-year-old woman with no history of trauma presented with a spontaneously dislocated crystalline lens into the anterior chamber accompanied by corneal endothelial cell loss. The crystalline lens was extracted intracapsularly after gentle separation from the corneal endothelium by using a viscoelastic material. Results: Visual acuity remained at 20/16 from 1 day postoperatively, with little endothelial cell loss compared with preoperatively. Conclusions: A spontaneously dislocated crystalline lens into the anterior chamber with severe corneal endothelial cell loss was treated successfully by intracapsular extraction. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
