Extracapsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation was performed in five phakic eyes filled with silicone oil following vitreoretinal surgery. Silicone oil migration was prevented during surgery using an anterior chamber maintaining system and a self-sealed corneoscleral tunnel incision. The posterior capsule opacified within 3 months in all patients, and neodymium:YAG capsulotomy or surgical discission was performed in a diamond-shaped pattern. No silicone-related complications were found, including silicone oil migration into the anterior chamber. There were no difficulties visualizing the peripheral retina during funduscopy.
