OBJECTIVE To study the influence of square-edged intraocular lenses (IOLs) on the development of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) and the requirement for laser capsulotomy. DESIGN Retrospective study. PARTICIPANTS Three hundred seventy-seven eyes of 377 patients were included. METHODS All these patients underwent phacoemulsification and implantation of square polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) (Aurolab), silicone (Tecnis Z9000), acrylic hydrophobic (AcrySof MA60AC and Sensar Optiedge… CONTINUE READING
