Vitrectomy was performed in 10 patients in combination with posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) insertion. Indications for vitrectomy included traumatically dislocated cataract, choroidal hemorrhage, epiretinal membrane, lens involving intraocular foreign body, vitreous hemorrhage, and extruded anterior chamber IOL. Postoperative visual acuity improved in each case. The main advantages of simultaneous IOL insertion, in selected cases, are reduced cost and inconvenience, and more rapid visual rehabilitation.
