Retinal detachment remains a rare but significant complication of cataract surgery. Different risk factors have been identified and are classified according to their occurrence prior to, during or after the lens procedure. Some clinical findings are relatively specific to pseudophakic retinal detachments, including the presence of small anterior retinal breaks which can be hard to detect. Therapeutic options include pneumatic retinopexy, scleral buckling and pars plana vitrectomy, the latter becoming over the years the preferred approach for many surgeons.
