  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated 34 cases after bilateral cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Each case received hydrogel IOL in one eye and acryl soft IOL in the fellow eye. They were followed up for 3 months after surgery. There was no difference in postoperative visual acuity, aqueous flare or rate of corneal endothelial cell loss between both eyes. Eyes with hydrogel IOL showed slightly more fibrous opacity in the posterior capsule. The density of posterior capsule opacity gradually increased : 11.3 at 1 week, 13.5 at 1 month and 17.5 at 3 months. The density in eyes with acryl soft IOL remained stationary : 10.6, 10.6 and 9.7 respectively. There was no eye needing posterior capsulotomy.
