In 144 eyes in 144 patients with senile cataract the rate of posterior capsular opacification requiring YAG capsulotomy up to 36 months following intercapsular cataract surgery with lens epithelial cell removal using ultrasound and aspiration was evaluated and compared to the rate for 471 senile cataractous eyes in patients who had had posterior chamber lens implantation following phacoemulsification and extracapsular cataract extraction without lens epithelial cell removal.
