A 91-year-old man sustained blunt trauma to an eye that had uneventful phacoemulsification through a superior clear corneal incision 5 years earlier. The silicone foldable intraocular lens (IOL) and a portion of the iris and capsular bag were expulsed through the cataract excision, which then self-sealed. This case illustrates the potential for expulsion of foldable IOLs through small clear corneal incisions even several years after surgery.
