The most important complication of extracapsular cataract extraction, with posterior chamber IOL implantation, is posterior capsule opacification. Clinical pathological and experimental studies have shown that specific IOL design may help reduce the incidence of this complication. From a retrospective study the authors consider the incidence of posterior capsule opacification, comparing three different posterior chamber intraocular lenses, one-piece all-polymethylmethacrilate, three-piece polymethylmethacrilate and prolene loops, and one-piece Poly-Hema.
