Abstract

The long-term results of pars plana lensectomy-vitrectomy by ultrasonic fragmentation for 18 consecutive subluxated (ectopic) lenses were retrospectively reviewed. There were no serious operative or postoperative complications at the 16-year follow-up. Visual acuity of 20/15 to 20/50 was obtained in 16 (89%) of 18 eyes. Len sectomy-vitrectomy for subluxated lenses appears to be a relatively safe and effective procedure. The technique can be combined with a phacoprosthesis (intraocular lens implant) in adults.
