Abstract: Analysis of complications in 1000 cases of primary posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation done, during a period of one year was undertaken for the study. The cases included uncomplicated as well as those with various associated conditions like diabetes, traumatic cataracts, complicated cataracts, myopia and developmental cataracts. The important postoperative complications were uveitis (9%), endophthalmitis (0.5%), malposition of IOL (2.8%) and cystoid macular edema (0.3%). Posterior capsule opacification was seen in 11.5% of cases and was treated by YAG laser capsulotomy. More than 80% cases had 6/6-6/12 vision. In our experience posterior chamber IOL implantation has become an extremely successful and satisfying procedure along with the availability of YAG laser facility to manage posterior capsule opacification.
