Macular Pucker Vitrectomy

Complications of Macular Pucker Vitrectomy

The most common complication of a macular pucker vitrectomy is an increase in the rate of cataract development. Cataract surgery may be needed within a few years after the vitrectomy. Other, less common complications are retinal detachment, either during or after the surgery, and infection after surgery. Also, the macular pucker may grow back, but this is rare.
