Purpose/methods: Subfoveal perfluorocarbon liquid (SPCL) causes vision loss and central scotoma. We present two clinical cases with this complication and we review the 5 clinical cases reported in the literature to analyse their potential prognostic factors. Results/conclusions: SPCL extraction involves an early visual acuity recovery and a central scotoma disappearance. The visual acuity recovery degree does not depend on the patient's age, the onset visual acuity or the evolution time when this last one is less than 3 months (Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2009; 84: 363-366).
