Abstract : Sunrise syndrome is a complication that most often occurs after cataract surgery. This complication occurs in cataract surgery with improper fixation of the IOL inside the capsular bag, or incomplete capsulorhexis. Overall, the incidence rate of Sunrise syndrome has actually decreased a lot with the increasing use of curved capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification with the safe placement of IOL in capsular bag [1]. To report the case of a patient who had sunrise syndrome. Woman 52 years old with main complaint blurry vision in both eyes since 3 months ago. Visual acuity examination revealed the visual acuity of Hand movement on the right eye. There was no improvement with pinhole, and the vision of the left eye was 0.20 with a pinhole of 0.40. Intraocular pressure in the right eye was 17 mmHg. The anterior segment was within normal limits, except the lens appeared cloudy. The patient was diagnosed with mature senile cataract on her right eye and underwent cataract extraction with the phacoemulsification method. Postoperative visual acuity phacoemulsification H+7 the patient complained of glare sometimes like seeing a rainbow, and occasional double vision in the eye that had been operated on. On visual acuity examination, the vision was 0.17, and there was a shift in the IOL lens. In patients with sunrise syndrome, treatment with the capsular tension ring (CTR) approach is quite effective, with the result IOL in a central position and visual progress.
