Cataract surgery, like any surgical procedure, has associated complications. Acute retinal complications include globe perforation, dislocated lens fragments, hemorrhagic choroidal detachment, and endophthalmitis. Late retinal complications include retinal detachment, cystoid macular edema, and exacerbation of diabetic retinopathy and other retinal conditions. Proper and timely management of retinal complications from cataract surgery is crucial in maximizing visual outcomes. Many of the complications and current management strategies will be outlined in this review.
