Abstract. Purpose:To report complications after 25-gauge vitrectomy performed on day-return basis. Cases and Method:This retrospective study was made on consecutive series of 360 eyes of 331 outpatients who received 25-guage vitrectomy during the past 71 months. The surgical field was rinsed with 0.25% providone-iodine throughout the process. Results:Major postoperative complications comprised vitreous hemorrhage 4 eyes(1.1%),secondary glaucoma 2 eyes(0.5%),neovascular glaucoma 2 eyes(0.5%),retinal detachment 1 eye(0.2%)and macular hole 1 eye(0.2%). There was no case of endophthalmitis throughout the series. Conclusion:The findings show that 25-gauge vitrectomy can be performed safely on outpatient basis if carefully conducted.
