1. A cataract almost always develops after vitrectomy and usually within year or two.
2. Read this carefully and at least 2-3 times:
3. For most people the safest procedure would be a monofocal, high quality aspherior IOL and a target refractive error of 0.00 if you want good distance vision (farther than 20 feet) or -1.00 if you want a reasonable distance vision, good intermediate vision and fair reading vision without glasses BUT you should be wearing glasses all the time to protect your good eye.
4. Be sure your cataract surgery and retina surgeon work closely together. You will need some extra visits post op to have the retina surgeon check your retina while the cataract is heeling
