We describe a case of Urrets-Zavalia syndrome (UZS) in a healthy 56-year-old woman who underwent femtosecond-assisted phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation in both eyes. One month after an uneventful postoperative course in the left eye, the right eye was operated. Dilated pupil which was nonreactive to light appeared on day 21 postoperatively. This was discovered upon examination following anterior chamber inflammatory reaction which occurred 2 weeks following her surgery. Our case report emphasizes the importance and danger in developing UZS even if the reaction in the anterior chamber does not occur immediately after surgery. In addition, the importance of intraocular pressure follow-up in the period after UZS is acknowledged.
