Abstract

Phaco-emusification is the most preferred technic at cataract surgery. Rate of dislocated intraocular lens (IOL) into the vitreous has been increased in this surgery. We reported here the results of a case who has dislocated IOL into the vitreous at the time of phaco-emulsification surgery and posterior chamber IOL located to sulcus at a secondary surgical procedure. If the patients have dislocated IOL into the vitreous and they have not any complication and visual acuity loss; IOL can be remain at the place of dropped. However, increasing risk of cystoid macular edema and retinal detachment should be remember, and these cases should be follow closely.
