  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 20 pseudophakic eyes which underwent vitrectomy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The intraocular lens (IOL) was kept in place in 14 eyes and was removed in 6 eyes. Both groups showed gratifying outcome regarding retinal reattachment, regression of retinopathy and control of intraocular pressure. We advocate removal of IOL during vitrectomy in the presence of rubeosis iridis, nuovascular glaucoma, dense aftercataract and possibility of intrasurgical IOL luxation.
