Management of Posterior Segment Complications of Posterior Capsular Rent



Phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation within the capsular bag has been established as the gold standard for managing cataracts. Phacoemulsification requires preservation of the posterior capsule for successful lens removal and subsequent intraocular lens placement. The incidence of most complications associated with this surgical procedure has significantly decreased with better instrumentation, affordable high-quality intraocular lens implants, and better preoperative evaluation. Although cataract surgery is safe for the majority of patients, some complications that involve the anterior and posterior segments can occur.
