What’s With Bag-In-The-Lens Implant to Prevent Posterior Capsular Opacification?
May 18, 2011
There is a technique, which makes posterior capsular opacification (PCO) practically impossible, where a posterior capsulorhexis made, and a special IOL, with no haptics but rather grooves on its edge, is placed so that the two rhexises fit snugly in the grooves, suspending the IOL.
Dr. Tassignon in Antwerp performs this procedure routinely (read Dr. Tassignon’s description of his technique here).
Well, I really don’t get it. Is PCO such a nuisance that this complicated maneuver is worthwhile? Count me out- I have a magic solution to PCO, and it’s spelled Y-A-G.
