A case of complete dislocation of the lens in the vitreous

A case of complete dislocation of the lens in the vitreous

Folia Ophthalmologica Japonica 41(2): 320-323

A 72-year-old male was referred to us with lens-induced uveitis and secondary glaucoma in his right eye after a year history of spontaneous dislocation of the lens into the vitreous. Since conservative management was ineffective, the dislocated lens was removed. Pars plana vitrectomy was done to remove vitreous gel for access to the lens in the vitreous cavity. Through a limbal corneoscleral incision, the lens was extracted transpupillarily with a cryoprobe, postoperatively, the inflammation subsided and the intraocular pressure returned to normal. Thanks to the efficacy and safety of the surgical procedures, this techique can be used to remove the mature cataractous lens dislocated into the vitreous, without complications.
