PURPOSE. The management of retinoblastoma has been shifting toward conservative treatment. Visual preservation has become a concern as tumor regression is achieved. To report the surgical approach and outcome of a radiation-induced cataract in an only eye with regressed retinoblastoma. METHODS. Single case report and review of literature. RESULTS. Small incision sutureless phacoemulsification and implant of an acrylic foldable intraocular lens was performed. Best-corrected visual acuity 1 year after surgery was 20/20. No tumor recurrence has been noted after 27 months of follow-up. CONCLUSIONS. Phacoemulsification and foldable intraocular lens implant seemed to be an appropriate therapeutic option for this case.
