Standard cataract surgery is considered as low-risk surgery for both patients and the surgeon, but some eyes have higher risk of complication due to some reasons that are generally known or can be predicted preoperatively. Knowing risky eyes and management of possible complications is important point for achieving good visual outcome after cataract surgery. We issued most encountered problems during surgery and some solutions to manage these difficult cases.

Vitreoretinal surgery has been radically changed over the past 10 years by the development of new techniques, smaller gauge instrumentation, and improvements in vitrectomy machines. The indications for vitrectomy have expanded dramatically, and inoperable conditions have become amenable to surgical treatment. In addition to improvements in intraocular instruments, various dyes become available and enable better visualization and a more complete removal of vitreous and membranes. In this chapter, we issued latest developments in the surgical field of retina that enable improved surgical outcomes and less complications.
