  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 30 eyes which had undergone phacoemulsification and aspiration with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and which later necessitated IOL removal and vitrectomy during the foregoing 4 years. The IOL had to be removed due to progression of diabetic retinopathy 11 eyes (37%), endophthalmitis 9 eyes (30%), retinal detachment 6 eyes (20%), ocular trauma 2 eyes (7%) and dislocation of IOL 2 eyes (7%). Final visual acuity of 0.1 or better was obtained in 4 eyes (36%) with diabetic retinopathy, 7 eyes (78%) with endophthalmitis, 3 eyes (50%) with retinal detachment, 1 eye (50%) with ocular trauma and 2 eyes (100%) with dislocated IOL. The findings show that progression of diabetic retinopathy is a major risk factor necessitating IOL removal.
