Abstract Details


To report 3 cases of cataract surgery with previous history of traumatic crystalline lens damage during intravitreal injection


Social Insurance Chukyo Hospital, Nagoya, Japan


We encountered 3 cataract eyes that had previous history of crystalline lens damage during intravitreal injection. Intra-/postoperative complications of cataract surgeries were retrospectively reviewed and evaluated.


In all 3 cases, following complete continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis, hydrodelineation was performed without hydrodisection during cataract surgery. Remaining lens cortex was completely aspirated, and then intraocular lens was successfully implanted on the capsular bag in all cases. . None of cases showed fall of crystalline lens fragments into vitreous cavity during surgery. Postoperative complication including retinal detachment and intraocular lens dislocation didn't occur in any cases.


Even in eyes with crystalline lens damage after intravitreal injection, safe cataract surgery without lens fall into vitreous cavity could be performed with the aid of hydrodelineation technique. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
