Abstract

Often the necessity of surgery of the vitreous gel and therefore the use of surgical techniques of vitrectomy are the consequence of surgery of the lens and of its pathology. The objective of this paper is to analyze the surgical techniques that must be used in every specific situation. We will examine among the causes of vitreous pathology after surgical intervention: a) contact between cornea and vitreous (cornea vitreous touch) b) vitreous incarceration with persistent aphakic cystoid macular edema c) lens material in the pupillary area and pupillary membranes attached to the anterior vitreous d) aphakic pupillary block glaucoma e) traumatic cataract with opacity of posterior capsule and modification of anterior vitreous
