Silicone oil bubbles entrapped in the vitreous base during silicone oil removal

DOI: 10.3207/2959859860

Especially heavy silicone oil has the peculiarity to be retained and entangled into the vitreous base. Thus after aspiration of the core of heavy oil it is strongly recommended to inspect the vitreous base with indentation. Since the oil bubbles are entrapped in the vitreous it requires active suction and cutting with a vitrectomy probe.
