Although there have recently been much advances in cataract surgery including cryoextraction, vitreous loss still remains as one of the major complications of cataract surgery and there is no completely effective method for its prevention and management. It is important to explain before surgery to the patient that such complications as vitreous loss and so on are occasionally inevitable. All methods which may be helpful to the prevention of vitreous loss should be undertaken before and during surgery. It is believed that vitreous aspiration with vitrectomy has been the preferred technique for the management of vitreous loss.
