  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We observed the clinical course of 24 patients for 12 months after bilateral cataract surgery. Each patient received a hydrogel intraocular lens (IOL) in one eye and an acrylsoft IOL in the other. The density of posterior capsule was quantitated using a slit-lamp image analysis system and was expressed in terms of computer compatible tapes (CCT). In eyes with hydrogel IOLs, it averaged 11.9 CCT at 1 week, 16.7 at 3 months, 18.8 at 6 months and 23.5 at 12 months. Eyes with acrylsoft IOLs did not show time-related changes in the density of posterior capsule.
