  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Opacity of hydrogel intraocular lens(IOL)developed in 2 eyes out of a consecutive series of 52 eyes of 36 cases. One was a 83-year-old female who received cataract surgery and IOL implantation. IOL opacity developed in her right eye 29months later. The other was a 66-year-old male who received cataract surgery and IOL implantation. IOL opacity developed in his right eye 16months later. We removed the opacified hydrogel IOL in both cases and implanted acrylic IOL. Both IOLs showed deposit of calcium salt by X-ray spectroscopic analysis. We advocate long-term observation of patients after implantation of hydrogel IOL.
