Uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema (UGH) syndrome is a rare complication usually seen with anterior chamber intraocular lens. We report the occurrence of sudden-onset blurred vision and pain 1 year after an uneventful sutureless scleral fixated intraocular lens (SFIOL) implantation. Despite initial conservative management, the symptoms persisted. A recurrence of VH, uncontrolled IOP, and an irritable painful eye led to the diagnosis of UGH syndrome, and the SFIOL was explanted. We postulate a floppy iris secondary to previous trauma with resultant iris chaffing as the cause for the occurrence of UGH syndrome.
