Sixteen months' experience with 140 posterior chamber intraocular lens implants.
  1. J. L. Pearce


    Three main designs of posterior chamber lenses in 140 cases have been reviewed. The visual results are satisfactory; patient satisfaction is good; and postoperative complications are limited to anterior dislocation of the feet of the lens and the necessity to wash out cortical remnants from behind the prosthesis in a small percentage of cases. The posterior chamber prosthesis is free from some of the complications of other intraocular lenses and probably provides the most 'normal' looking eye of any pseudophakoi.
