Abstract

The total number of cataract operations performed annually in the United States is not known with certainty, but it is estimated that 75% of cataract operations performed in the United States are associated with implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL) (1). As lens designs and surgical techniques improve, fewer IOL-related complications are being encountered. By way of this communication we discuss the surgical management of selected intraocular lens complications.
