dc.description.abstractAim: to evaluate the rate of symptomatic posterior capsule opacification requiring Nd:YAG capsulotomy in patients who underwent cataract extraction and implantation of zaraccom ultraflex lenses (one-piece hydrophobic acrylic square edged intraocular lens). Methods: 142 eyes of 103 patients who had cataract extraction and implantation of zaraccom ultraflex lenses (IOLs) were evaluated for rate of nd:yag capsulotomy from april 2008 to august 2009. The cases that received Nd:YAG capsulotomies were evaluated for visual acuity, lens position and centralization and the frequency of nd: yag laser determined. Results: the mean preoperative best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 0.31 +/- 0.20 And the final mean BCVA was 0.96 +/- 0.06 With snellen chart. The rate of nd: yag capsulotomy was 0.7%. The mean time to Nd: YAG capsulotomy was 24.34 Months (range: 12 to 30 months). Conclusion: posterior capsule opacification was significantly less for the patients 50 years and over with the Zaraccom Ultraflex IOLs at 2 years.en_US
