Abstract

Intraocular lens (IOL) implantation is now accepted as the most effective means of aphakic correction in selected patients undergoing cataract surgery. In terms of final rehabilitation, however, complications such as corneal oedema, retinal detachment, and cystoid macular oedema remain problematic. Results of prospective concurrent trials of IOL implantation performed at the Wilmer Institute are presented, with particular reference to the posterior chamber intraocular lens and with specific emphasis on postoperative complications.
