Hypertonic mannitol solution has been found to be most effec­tive in preventing vitreous loss in cataract surgery due to profound hypotony and detergence of vitreous following intravenous in­fusion. Routine use of mannitol is hence recommended prior to cataract surgery, especially in all one-eyed patients or in cases where there is an increased risk of vitreous disturbances.
