Vitreous is the most mobile intraocular tissue.8 Recognition of vitreous prolapse is also influenced by the condition of the tissue: a formed vitreous is easily visualized in the wound, while a less formed one may be difficult to visualize. TA is very helpful: its adherence to the vitreous fibrils is much stronger than to smooth tissues such as the sclera or choroid. If the wound is in the anterior sclera, and the AC and lens are clear, strands in the anterior vitreous are usually visible at the slit lamp visible as lines converging toward the wound (Fig. 2.4.1).
