The importance of a sufficiently large incision during soft intraocular lens (IOL) implantation is illustrated and highlighted by a single case study. In our patient, insufficient enlargement of the incision caused a crack in the optic of the Acrysof IOL. The IOL could, however, be left in place because of its excellent biocompatibility. Different management options are discussed.
