A clinical study of complications of intraocular lens implantation
Keywords:Extracapsular cataract extraction, Posterior chamber intraocular lens, Complications
Objective: Main objective is to study of complications encountered with cataract extraction with IOL implantation . Methodology: This study was on 1500 patients selected in random aged more than 40 years who underwent extracapsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation and followed up for a period of 6 months. Results: Incidence of Cataract was more in the age group of 40-60 years and males were predominant (64%). Senile mature cataract was the main indication for surgery. Common complication intraoperatively is posterior capsular rupture of 4.13%, most common intermediate post operative complication is straite keratitis of 51.33% and late post operative complication after cataract pseudoplakic bullous of 13.66% is observed. . Visual acuity in patients was poor with counting fingers in 76% before surgery, After follow up of 6 months patients visual acuity of 6/6 is seen in 33.6 % of operated cases. Conclusion: Complications of PC IOL implantation can be minimized by better microsurgical techniques, magnification and the experience of operating surgeon.
