  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed vitreous surgery in 123 eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy during the foregoing 51 months. Lens in place vitrectomy was performed in 49 eyes, of which 41 eyes, 84%, achieved surgical success after the first vitrectomy. In the other 74 eyes, lenses were removed during the first vitrectomy resulting in surgical success in 65 eyes, 88%. There was no significant difference in the rate of surgical success between the two procedures. The findings suggest that the outcome of vitrectomy in proliferative diabetic retinopathy is independent of simultaneous lensectomy.
