  • Look Inside

We reviewed 22 eyes of 21 cases of pseudophakic retinal detachment treated by pars plana vitrectomy as the initial procedure during the past 7 years. Out of the 22 eyes, 15 eyes received additional scleral buckling to reduce peripheral vitreal traction. Retinal reattachment was obtained in 20 eyes (91%) after the first procedure. Multiple surgeries had to be performed in 2 eyes after simple vitrectomy. Final reattachment was obtained in 21 eyes (95%). Visual acuity improved by 2 lines or more in 18 eyes, decreased by 2 lines or more in 2 eyes and remained unchanged in 2 eyes. Complications included pupillary capture 1 eye, macular pucker 1 eye and proliferative vitreoretinopathy 2 eyes. The findings show the efficacy of vitrectomy as the primary procedure for pseudophakic retinal detachment.
