Intraocular lenses were removed from ten eyes with chronic cystoid macular edema demonstrated by fluorescein angiography. No corneal transplantation was done at the time of intraocular lens removal. Five eyes achieved a visual acuity of 20/50 or better. Exchange for a posterior chamber intraocular lens did not appear to have an adverse affect compared to simple intraocular lens removal.
