Abstract

A 36-year-old man with proliferative diabetic retinopathy who had had silicone oil tamponade and removal, silicone intraocular lens (IOL) implantation, and neodymium:YAG capsulotomy presented with blurred vision. Slitlamp examination revealed a silicone oil droplet on the posterior surface of the silicone IOL. Pars plana vitrectomy using 25-gauge instruments was performed, and the droplet was easily aspirated with the 25-gauge vitreous cutter.
