    A standardised experimental posterior penetrating eye injury in the rhesus monkey with the vitreous-lens admixture resulted in limited fibrous ingrowth from the wound and minimal traction on the peripheral retina. Microscopically inflammation was noted in the iris, ciliary body, and as a perivascular infiltrate of the inner retina. Periretinal membranes did not occur, and cellular proliferation within the vitreous was less marked than observed after an identical wound and simulated vitreous haemorrhage in previously reported studies. The lens may be a less important stimulus to intravitreal fibroblastic proliferation than previously assumed.
