A 61-year-old gentleman presented with double vision in the right eye following cataract surgery done elsewhere. Examination revealed a polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) intraocular lens (IOL) placed in the anterior chamber (AC), along with a subluxated hydrophilic IOL, with one haptic between the PMMA lens and the iris [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Both IOLs were removed, and as capsular support was adequate, a MA60AC IOL was placed in the sulcus.

In unusual circumstances, a second IOL is implanted without removing the first.[1] While there are reports of a second IOL dislocated into the vitreous cavity,[2],[3] two IOLs in the AC has never been described.
