Other management options include topical tretinoin, dermabrasion, needle microincision and extirpation, and resurfacing using YAG laser or C[O.sub.2] laser [2,16,17,25-27].
In all patients, we performed microincision vitrectomy using a 25-gauge instrument with a Constellation vented gas-forced infusion and IOP control system (Alcon, Fort Worth, TX) under local anesthesia, after retrobulbar injection of 2% lidocaine hydrochloride (Xylocaine, 2.5 mL; AstraZeneca K.K., Osaka, Japan) and 0.75% ropivacaine hydrochloride (Anapeine, 2.5 mL; AstraZeneca K.K.).
Microincision cataract surgery technique effectively preserves corneal endothelial cells and reduces risk of corneal edema.[sup][16] Micropulse technique increases anterior chamber stability [sup][17] and decreases thermal effect.[sup][18] Torsional ultrasound mode reduces phacoemulsification time and energy.[sup][19] New ophthalmic viscosurgical devices, such as Viscoat, Provisc, and soft-shell technique, decrease thermal effect.[sup][20] Thus, in certain cases of complicated cataract after PKP such as cases in which nuclear hardness is ≤III, better postoperative visual acuity is demanded, and an advanced technology IOL is preferred, phacoemulsification should be suggested.
(1,2,3,4,5) Microincision cataract surgery (MICS) can be performed with either microcoaxial or biaxial phacoemulsication.

Class 1, corresponding to telangiectasia or reticular veins, is generally indicated for treatment with sclerotherapy and/or microincision surgery.
