Between August 1982 and July 1985, 19 eyes were operated for pseudophakic retinal detachment (PRD) (Anterior chamber lens in 13 eyes, posterior chamber lens in 3 eyes and iris supported lens in 3 eyes). The characteristics of these pseudophakic retinal detachments were very similar to those following intracapsular cataract extractions. Retina was re-attached in 18 eyes (95%), in 14 eyes, after one buckling procedure. In 4 eyes, altogether 12 surgical procedures were needed to re-attach the retina. Problems to visualize the peripheral retina, made it necessary to remove the IOL in 3 eyes (2 iris fixated and one in the anterior chamber).
