Forty patients with hypotony during retinal detachment surgery were treated with intravitreal Healon. Healon was very well tolerated, except for a transient rise in the intra-ocular pressure in 19 out of 40 patients. A relationship between the rise in intra-ocular pressure and the mount of Healon used was not found. Temporal corneal decompensation occurred in two patients. Early cases of proliferative vitreo-retinopathy with retinal detachment were treated successfully with external retinal-detachment surgery and intravitreal Healon.
