Opacification of intraocular lens rare phenomenon occurs and causes extreme diminution of vision in patients even after uneventful cataract surgery. Several reports of wrong diagnosis and delayed diagnosis of an opacified IOL leads to delayed treatment. The opacified IOL needs to be removed and exchanged with another PCIOL. This case report describes the electron microscopic analysis of an explanted intraocular lens and also gives details of the chemical composition. This is the first case report where presence of potassium has been noted in the opacified IOL as was detected by Scanning electron microscopic analysis.
