Posterior Optic Button Holing

The technique of posterior optic button holing is used in pediatric cataract patients in order to avoid secondary cataracts and in adults to achieve a stable, centered IOL placement. Dr. Burkhard Dick demonstrates this technique under the Lumera microscope which provides excellent visualization of the anterior and posterior capsulorhexis and lens placement.

Excellent surgical demonstration. If vitreous is disturbed how to proceed? Can Single Piece IOL be given for Optic Button Holing?

I would like to have features about postoperative complications, if any. Obviously it is not possible to remove the OVD from behind the PCIOL as we normally do; does this lead to postoperative IOP increase? Do you normally prescribe CAIs as postoperative treatment? Many thanks for your answers
