  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed extracapsular cataract extraction and posterior chamber lens implantation in 21 eyes, 18 patients, with inactive or controlled endogenous uveitis. Postoperative aqueous flare intensity, as measured by laser flare-cell meter, showed signifi-cantly elevated values than in pseudophakic eyes after senile cataract during the postoperative 12-month period. The differences were not clinically manifest. We advocate intraocular lens implanta-tion in inactive and well-controlled uveitis because of infrequent intra- and postoperative complica-tions, better postoperative vision and no apparent recurrences.
