A visual deterioration due to opacification of the intraocular lens was observed 3 weeks after uncomplicated combined minimally invasive glaucoma and cataract surgery. Due to the patient's failure to apply the prescribed postoperative local anti-inflammatory eyedrops, homogeneous fibrin coating on the anterior surface of the lens occurred, as well as early scarring of the filtering bleb. We performed needling with 5-fluorouracil and lens polishing with the Nd:YAG laser to achieve sufficient pressure control and vision improvement.
