  • Look Inside

We evaluated the site and severity of secondary cataract in pseudophakic eyes in relation to visual acuity and glare disability in 30 eyes each after insertion of convex-plano and plano-convex types of intraocular lens.

Percentage glare disability began to increase 1month after convex-plano lens. It became more mainfest after 3 months. In eyes after plano-convex lens implantation, opacification of the posterior capsule showed similar trends, with the difference that the opacification was milder and was less intense in the central area with less pronounced glare disability.
