Abstract

A consecutive series of pseudophakic retinal detachments was statistically compared with a matched group of aphakic retinal detachments. Distribution of breaks, anatomic results, and final visual acuities were tabulated. Success in reattachment was equal in the two groups, but final visual acuities were better in the aphakic group. Emphasis was placed on the intraoperative ophthalmoscopic examination of pseudophakic eyes with compromised peripheral fundus visibility.
