A comparative analysis of anterior chamber, iris-supported, capsule-fixated, and posterior chamber intraocular lenses following cataract extraction by phacoemulsification

Ophthalmology. 1981 Jan;88(1):56-8. doi: 10.1016/s0161-6420(81)35077-5.


Representative lens styles of four different intraocular lens groups after cataract extraction by phacoemulsification are compared. Certain cases were excluded to minimize inconsistency. Postoperative visual acuities and complications of each lens type are compared.
