Injection-molded intraocular lenses may undergo structural changes when exposed to solvents and fixatives during post-mortem examination. We report a case in which this phenomenon was seen in an injection-molded lens. We were able to duplicate these changes by immersing injection-molded lenses in 60% alcohol for 48 hours.
