Methods: Perfluorodecalin was noted in the anterior chamber in 2 patients after a vitreoretinal surgery was performed. We removed the perfluorodecalin by using a Rycroft cannula mounted on the tip of a tuberculin syringe with continued irrigation by means of an anterior chamber maintainer. Results: The perfluorodecalin was removed using a single intervention. We did not observe any perfluorodecalin residue in subsequent postoperative examinations in either patient. Conclusions: The method is simple and safe, and it allows the complete removal of perfluorocarbon liquids from the anterior chamber using a single intervention. *Department of Ophthalmology, Medical School of Ataturk University, Erzurum, Turkey.
