    Abstract

    We report a case in which the lens nucleus dislocated into the vitreous cavity through a posterior capsular rupture during phakoemulsification. We performed a vitrectomy and removed the lens nucleus using the perfluorocarbon heavy liquid perfluoro-1,3-dimethylcyclohexane. The management of posterior dislocation of the lens nucleus during cataract surgery is discussed.
