Arch Ophthalmol. 1977;95(7):1203-1204. doi:10.1001/archopht.1977.04450070101008

• Intraocular lenses are a challenge to the retina surgeon. Forty-three eyes with pseudophakia and retinal detachment were examined. Intracapsular and extracapsular cataract extractions had been performed, and different types of lenses had been implanted.

The single most Important factor for the successful repair of these pseudophakic detachments was visual access to the retina.
