Abstract

Six consecutive cases of retinal detachment occurring in the presence of a posteriorly dislocated intraocular lens were managed between 1978 and 1988. In three cases, a standard scleral buckling procedure was performed with successful retinal reattachment, leaving the dislocated implant in the inferior formed vitreous. In two cases, the implant was removed through the pars plana at the time of pars plana vitrectomy, fluid/gas exchange, and scleral buckling procedure. In the remaining case, the intracular lens was repositioned with scleral fixation sutures after pars plana vitrectomy, fluid/gas exchange, and scleral buckling. All cases achieved and maintained retinal reattachment with visual improvement. Recommendations for management are discussed.
