  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 17 eyes of 17 patients who received vitreous surgery for complications during or after cataract surgery. The series comprised 7 eyes of dislocated nucleus,6 eyes of infectious endophthalmitis,and 1 eye each of expulsive hemorrhage,rhegmatogenous retinal detachment,dislocated intraocular lens,and eyeglobe perforation during local anesthesia. Final visual acuity improved in all the 7 eyes of dislocated lens nucleus. It was 0.5 or below in 3 eyes,due to corneal damage during cataract surgery. Endophthalmitis became manifest 2 to 6 days,average 3 days,after surgery. Vitrectomy with irrigation by antibiotics-added solution induced rapid improvement. Throughout the whole series,final visual acuity improved in 16 eyes(94%). The findings show that vitreous surgery may be effective for serious complications during or after cataract surgery.
