Retained lens material is a rare complication of cataract surgery and also can occur as a result of trauma. It occurs in 0.1% to 1.5% of cataract patients. Risk factors for the development of retained lens material include less surgical experience, trauma, pseudoexfoliation, previous intraocular surgery, and increasing lens density. While small pieces of cortical material may be observed to reduce potential complications, including glaucoma, cystoid macular edema, and retinal detachment… Expand
