Retinal Detachment With a Dislocated Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lens

Arch Ophthalmol. 2001;119(6):909-911. doi:

supluxation and complete dislocation of posterior chamber intraocular lenses (PCIOLs) into the vitreous cavity are well described complications of cataract surgery. A variety of approaches to their management have been reported.1-3 We report a case in which a dislocated PCIOL was left in the vitreous cavity. Some time later, this PCIOL appears to have contributed to a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
