Brown-McLean is a complication of many intraocular procedures, including cataract extraction, phacoemulsification, lensectomy, and vitrectomy. It occurs years after a surgery. Its exact cause is unknown, though some patients may have a hereditary predisposition.
Brown-McLean is usually treated with lubrication, hyperosmotics, and observation.
