  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We quantitated the opacity of aftercataract and evaluated its relation to the visual acuity. We selected 35 eyes which had to be treated by posterior capsulotomy for aftercataract. The ages averaged 67.1 years. The slitlamp images of the lens were processed into density values by an anterior eye segment analysis system. The area of lens opacity was similarly quantitated from retroillumination images 4mm in pupil diameter. The density of opacity was significantly higher in the series than in controls. Glare disability increased in proportion to the density or area of opacity.
