Vitrectomy in the Management of Posteriorly Dislocated Intraocular Lenses
Although natural history studies have not been reported, posteriorly dislocated intraocular lenses can be well tolerated in many cases. Standard spectacle or contact lens correction may be adequate to achieve visual rehabilitation in such an eye. The decision to surgically reposition a dislocated intraocular lens may be influenced by a number of factors. These factors are the severity of intraocular inflammation (including cystoid macular edema), the inability to tolerate or achieve visual correction using standard optical techniques, the visual requirements of the individual patient, and the status of the fellow eye.
