Abstract
The opacification of the lens posterior bag after cataract removal with IOL implantation is still the common postoperative complication. The only way of visual acuity improvement in such cases is laser Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy. Sometimes the accidental damage of PMMA or silicone intraocular lenses occurs. The damage sites in silicone IOL appears smaller than in PMMA IOL.
