• We successfully used three types of flexible ophthalmoendoscopes for the surgical treatment of various abnormalities in the posterior ocular segments. All 23 patients had opacification of the cornea and lens, which made it difficult or even impossible to perform intravitreal surgery on the "closed" eye. All operations were performed through the pars plana. No complications were noted.
