Re: Secondary Cataract?
Pigmentary glaucoma is a form of glaucoma. Many of these patients present with blurry vision, and sometimes eye pain, after exercise. The underlying cause is dispersion of pigment in the eye as a result of the posterior aspect of the iris rubbing against the zonules (microscopic fibers which hold the IOL in place. This is known as iris-zonular touch. In fact, all patients with pigmentary glaucoma will necessarily have pigmentary dispersion syndrome prior to the onset of glaucoma. Therefore it has been speculated that these patients with pigmentary glaucoma may,in some cases,have a conditon of pigment forming on the anterior surface of the IOL.
