Abstract

Cataract development is common in phakic eyes after pars plana vitrectomy and exposure to silicone oil. Anterior capsule rigidity is frequently encountered during cataract surgery in these cases. We report a capsulotomy technique to overcome capsule rigidity, as well as the histopathological findings of the anterior capsule after prolonged exposure to silicone oil.
