Retinal detachment is one of the most serious complications of cataract surgery. Vitreous changes such as ‘anterior movement’ or ‘protuberance of the posterior surface of the vitreous’ have been postulated to occur, and cause posterior vitreous detachment which subsequently may lead to an increased incidence of retinal detachment in pseudophakic eyes. Additionally, several intraocular lenses(IOLs) such as multifocal, iris fixated or scleral fixated IOLs are more and more used by cataract surgeons. Retinal detachment in these eyes pose a new therapeutic challenge to vitreoretinal surgeons.
