Abstract

Seventeen patients (25 eyes) who underwent a pars plicata lensectomy and vitrectomy for congenital cataract were evaluated with fluorescein angiography and angioscopy for the presence of cystoid macular edema. Studies were done from 1 month to 7 years after surgery (mean interval, 22.5 months; median interval, 12 months). Except in one eye with questionable grade 1 cystoid macular edema, the authors did not find this complication in any of their patients.
