We appreciate and thank the authors for their interest in our case series of pseudoexfoliation (PXF) on pseudophakos after 3 years of publication.
We are glad that they too have observed a similar finding. Many a times, it is a serendipitous discovery following the dilation of pseudophakic eyes. In all the three cases that we have reported, PXF was seen with sulcus fixation of intraocular lens (IOL) in contrast to their report with capsular bag IOL. After our report, we have come across many more patients with PXF material on IOL. We can no more call it a rare finding.
We believe that PXF deposited on IOL has the same pathophysiology and clinical significance as PXF in phakic eyes. These patients should be on regular follow-up for glaucoma as was seen in the three cases that we reported.
