Late capsular bag distension syndrome occurs most of the time with the accumulation of opaque milky fluid behind the IOL, without refractive change, like in one of our cases. The other case that we will describe had an accumulation of a clear fluid behind the IOL with an induced hyperopia. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first published report of capsular bag distension syndrome with a shift towards hyperopia. In both case the visual acuity and the initial refraction was restored after Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy.
