We present the case of a 72 year old woman who developed a dense cataract after undergoing pars plana vitrectomy for retinal detachment repair. Pre-op exam revealed a focal, linear, capsular and lenticular opacity temporally, suspicious for iatrogenic injury from vitreoretinal instrumentation. This film demonstrates strategies for successful cataract surgery with no vitreous loss.
