Abstract: The authors conducted a retrospective study during a 4-year period (jan. 91-dec. 94) of the charts of 26 patients (27 eyes) treated by pars plana vitrectomy for posteriorly dislocated crystalline lenses or lens fragments. One patient had a spontaneous lens luxation on both eyes and 3 patients presented with a posttraumatic dislocation of their lens. Twenty one eyes had retained intravitreal lens material after cataract surgery and 1 after perforating injury. Six eyes received an intraocular lens (IOL) at the end of the vitrectomy procedure; in 11 eyes an IOL had already been inserted at the time of primary cataract surgery. Ten eyes were left aphakic. Surgical details and visual outcome are discussed.
