The exact cause of PCMO is unclear but may be due to inflammation associated with surgical trauma, secondary to phacoemulsification energy, vitreous-macular traction, or posterior vitritis.
The diagnosis of PCMO can generally be made on clinical examination through dilated fundoscopy.
PCMO is a fairly common presentation but resolves spontaneously in most patients within four to eight weeks.
The continuing global migration to lower viscosity grade PCMO will result in higher penetration of synthetics, semi-synthetics, higher revenues, and, conversely, longer oil drain intervals and suppressed overall PCMO growth.
The increasing demand for lower viscosity PCMO is driven by its ability to improve fuel economy; and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) recommending these oils to maximize performance and converting their factory and service fill requirements to these low viscosity grade products.

Another observation made by Kline is that the continuing global migration to lower visgrade PCMO will result in higher penetration of synthetics, semi-synthetics, higher revenues, and conversely longer ODIs and lower overall PCMO demand.
For example, for those needing to understand the growth rate for synthetic OW-XX PCMO in Thailand, there is no better source than Kline's searchable LubesNet database.
