Abstract Details


A case of a 87 year old lady with asteroid hyalosis is presented, who underwent combined cataract surgery and anterior vitrectomy through PCCC.


Department of Ophthalmology, University of Pécs, Hungary


After phacoemulsification a capsulorhexis was performed on the posterior capsule (PCCC) through which anterior vitrectomy (750 cut/min) was performed to remove hyalin bodies from the vitreous. A hydrophobic acrylic PC-IOL was implanted into the capsular bag.


The preoparative visual acuity of 0.2 improved to 0.5 after surgery, and the follow-up period was uneventful.


After careful patient selection and with meticulous surgery the combined procedure can be considered to solve the two problems of cataract and severe vitreous opacities in one session.
