Vitreous in the anterior chamber is a known cause of raised intraocular pressure following cataract surgery. We present a case of delayed intraocular pressure following cataract surgery in a patient with pseudoexfoliation caused by vitreous prolapse into the posterior chamber. Control of intraocular pressure was achieved by an anterior vitrectomy. Prompt recognition and management of this condition is essential for a good outcome.
