Eight patients who were unable to receive posterior capsulotomy with the YAG laser owing to severe posterior capsule opacification and residual cortical matter in intraocular lens (IOL)-implanted eyes underwent pars plana vitrectomy with a 2-spot and 27-gauge system. In all eight patients, visual acuity improved from the day after operation. This operation is safe and can almost completely remove opacity in a short period.
