Retinal detachment following intracapsular cataract extraction.

A retrospective investigation of aphakic retinal detachments following intracapsular cataract extraction during a 12-year period was performed. A total of 8350 eyes had intracapsular cataract extraction in the study period and 118 eyes developed aphakic retinal detachment. The occurrence of retinal detachment is related to age, sex, intraoperative complications, myopia, hyperopia, and pseudophakia. Age and myopia were significantly associated with aphakic retinal detachment. Previous aphakic retinal detachment in the one eye was a strong predictor for the other eye.[1]
