Purpose: To determine whether the gauge of vitrectomy instrumentation is associated with the progression of nuclear sclerotic cataract. Methods: A prospective interventional and observational study of patients undergoing vitrectomy surgery for various retinal conditions. Patients had Scheimpflug lens photography in the operated and fellow eye at baseline and at 6 months and 12 months after vitrectomy surgery. Results: Of 42 eyes included in the analysis, 11 had 20-gauge surgery, 22 had 23-gauge… Expand
