Ocular Surgery News Europe;Mar2011, Vol. 22 Issue 3, p14
The article discusses the views of ophthalmology experts on the prevention and treatment of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) in cataract surgery. Jorge L. Alió uses square-edged intraocular lenses (IOL) and cleans the capsular bag as much as possible during the surgery. Michael Amon proposes a surgical option and the appropriate choice of intraocular lens. Alessandro Galan treats the complication with Nd: YAG laser capsulotomy.
