Posterior capsule plaques (PCPs) are a rare cause of suboptimal vision after eventless cataract surgery. While these can be managed with posterior capsulotomy, violation of the posterior capsular integrity and associated vitreous disturbances may lead to sight-threatening complications. Viscoseparation and peeling of PCPs with the aid of retinal end-grasping forceps and irrigation and aspiration have also been described in adults for getting rid of PCPs with minimal disturbance of PC and vitreous. While Sinskey hook (SH) has been used to peel PCPs in children, the combined use of SH with viscoseparation for removal of PCP, particularly for adults, remains vaguely described in the literature. Presently, we describe a method of SH and viscoelastic assisted PCP extraction (SVAPE) in adult eyes with centrally located PCPs.
