Unanticipated vision loss after pars plana vitrectomy.
Although advances in vitreoretinal surgical techniques and technology have helped to minimize the risks associated with surgical manipulation of the retina, retinal pigment epithelium, and optic nerve, unanticipated or unexplained visual loss still occurs. We review causes of vision loss encountered after pars plana vitrectomy, including retinal toxicities, vascular events, and optic neuropathies, and we suggest strategies to limit or prevent them.
