  Urrets-Zavalia syndrome (UZS) is a rare complication of ophthalmic surgery. In this paper, we report a case of UZS in a young lady who is a known case of systemic lupus erythromatosis (SLE) which was in remission for few months before surgery who underwent a bilateral consecutive implantable collamer lens (ICL) implantation for high myopia. The patient underwent the first surgery in the right eye uneventfully; three days later she underwent the operation in the left eye, and presented in the first post operation day with high intraocular pressure (IOP) and mid-dilated pupil. She was managed properly with intraocular pressure-lowering agents, but unfortunately, the pupil remained dilated after 2 years of follow up, even with all measures taken properly trying to constrict it back.
