    Dear Editor,

    I have two points to make about this article:

    1. Adhesion to the capsule works even during implantation of IOLs. As the acrylate material IOLs seem to have a higher adhesion tendency they require a lubricant viscoelastic material during rotation and positioning. This is why it is more difficult to rotate an acrylate IOL while using an AC maintainer and no viscoelastics. Silicone and PMMA IOLs do not...
