A 58-year-old female presented with diminution of vision in the left eye (OS). Slit-lamp examination revealed multiple radially distributed greyish white paracentral deposits suggestive of pseudoexfoliative material on the anterior surface of the poly (methyl methacrylate) intraocular lens in the right eye (OD) [Figure 1] while the OS had cataractous changes. Gonioscopy showed hyperpigmentation of the trabecular meshwork. The left eye revealed no evidence of pseudoexfoliation. Fundus examination was unremarkable.

Pseudoexfoliative material on the intraocular lens surface is a rare finding. It could be an important clue in the diagnosis of pseudoexfoliation syndrome, which remains the most common identifiable cause of primary open-angle glaucoma.,
