    A retrospective study of 102 cases of Boberg-Ans intraocular lens implantations was conducted. The operations were performed in 3 Birmingham eye units by 5 consultants and 6 surgeons in training. Follow-up ranged from 6 months to 2 years, with a mean of 12.6 months. No cases with adequate follow-up were excluded. When eyes with pre-existing adverse factors were excluded, 87% achieved 6/12 or better. There were no appreciable difference between the results obtained by consultants and those of surgeons in training. The advantages and disadvantages of the lens are discussed.
