A 50 yr old man underwent removal of a traumatic cataract wih an intralenticular foreign body. Surgery was complicated by an unplanned extracapsular delivery of the lens and vitreous loss. Two years later, with a visual acuity of hand motions and signs of phthisis bulbi, he had a vitrectomy that cleared the media to reveal a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. The detachment was treated by cryopexy, scleral buckling, and intraocular gas injection. One year after this combined procedure, his best corrected visual acuity was 20/400 with clear media and attached retina.
