Retinal detachment following intraocular lens implantation
- 20 Downloads
This report concerns a consecutive series of 154 pseudophakic eyes in which primary scleral buckling procedures were performed for rhegmatogenous retinal detachments. Most cases involved eyes in which extracapsular surgery had been combined with iridocapsular implants or posterior chamber lenses or in which iris-fixation intraocular lenses were placed following intracapsular surgery. The characteristics of the detachments were similar, although there was a trend towards an increased incidence of significant preoperative proliferative vitreoretinopathy in the intracapsular cases. Anatomical success rates were over 90% in all groups. There was a trend for lower visual acuities following successful surgery in the eyes in which intracapsular surgery had been performed than in those following extracapsular procedures.
