As the lens opacity progressed, the complication rate increased. Unfortunately, there is currently no medication that can prevent or slow the progression of cataracts, and phacoemulsification with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation is the standard of care.

The key to success of cataract management is early diagnosis, monitoring, medications, and surgery.

Lens luxation

When all of the lens zonules are torn, the lens will luxate anteriorly or posteriorly. Anterior lens luxation is considered an ophthalmic emergency for pain, lacrimation, conjunctival hyperemia and corneal edema which can lead to glaucoma, uveitis and retinal detachment, etc. To prevent loss of vision, immediate treatment is recommended.
