Instruments designed for pars plana vitrectomy can be used to manage selected complicated congenital cataracts such as those with persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV). We have applied closed‐eye vitrectomy techniques through a limbal approach in seven eyes with PHPV. A clear pupillary space was achieved in all cases and two of the seven eyes achieved useful vision. The management of children with complicated congenital cataracts such as those with PHPV is discussed.
