Intraocular lens (IOL) opacification after cataract surgery has been widely reported, but opacification during pars-plana vitrectomy (PPV) has not been reported. In our case, a 59-year-old male patient underwent PPV. During the surgery, IOL was found to be cloudy, and the area accounted for half of IOL. The surgical field was not affected. At the end of surgery, the degree of opacification decreased significantly. On the first day after surgery, IOL was completely transparent. IOL opacification may be caused by condensation and does not affect retina observation during PPV. It is not necessary to remove and replace the IOL immediately.
