PURPOSE: To assess the efficacy of ocriplasmin in patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT) syndrome <1,500 μm with or without a full-thickness macular holes of <400 μm. METHODS: In this study, a retrospective analysis of 10 eyes of 10 patients with VMT who were treated with ocriplasmin between December 2014 and January 2016 was performed. Ocriplasmin 0.125 mg was injected only once in all cases. Outcome measures included the detachment of VMT, best-corrected visual acuity, the evaluation of optical coherence tomography, including the closure of full-thickness macular holes, and the reduction of macular edema (if present) and the decrease of metamorphopsia if present...

PURPOSE: Persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) is a developmental anomaly in which the normal regression of the primary vitreous and hyaloid vasculature does not occur. In the literature, there are a few cases of PHPV in adulthood. We report the novel presentation of phacoanaphylactic glaucoma secondary to posterior capsular rupture in an adult with PHPV. We discuss the best management of this condition with a review of the literature on this topic. METHODS: Case report and literature review...
