  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed a consecutive series of 24 eyes which developed retinal detachment following cataract surgery by phacoemulsification and aspiration during the foregoing 5 years. The presumed risk factors were evaluated by comparing 1,098 eyes which underwent uneventful cataract surgery during 3 years. We identified following items as risk factors for pseudophakic retinal detachment : male, intraoperative rupture of posterior capsule, and axial length longer than 24mm.Intraoperative rupture of posterior capsule particularly contributed to early occurrence of retinal detachment.
