Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the degree of post-operative ocular inflammation in patients who are undergoing a pars plana vitrectomy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Vitrectomy Procedure: Pars Plana Vitrectomy

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 25 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Study Start Date : March 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2012
Actual Study Completion Date : June 2012

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Pars Plana Vitrectomy
Pars plana vitrectomy performed in study eye on Day 0.
Procedure: Pars Plana Vitrectomy
Pars plana vitrectomy performed in study eye on Day 0.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Vitreous Cell Count of 0 [ Time Frame: Week 4 ]
    The study eye was dilated and the investigator used an instrument to count the number of visible cells in the vitreous, the jelly-like fluid that fills the back of the eye, using the following scale: 0 (no cells) best, +1 (1-10 cells), +2 (11-30 cells), +3 (31-50 cells) and +4 (>50 cells) worst.
