Nanophthalmos is a rare eye condition characterized by short axial length (<20 mm), high lens-to-eye volume ratio, thick sclera, angle closure, and high hypermetropia. Cataract surgery in nanophthalmic eyes is associated with a higher rate of complications compared to routine cataract surgery. We discuss a case of a nanophthalmic patient (axial length (AL) of 15.80 mm) who presented with angle closure glaucoma, underwent uneventful cataract surgery with in-the-bag intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. The patient developed postoperative uveal effusion followed by malignant glaucoma that was managed effectively by 25 G capsulo-zonulo-iridectomy with anterior vitrectomy. Timely management resolved the episode.
