Purpose: To compare the difference in Visual acuity, PCO and Uveitis between acrylic hydrophilic and acrylic hydrophobic intraocular
lenses implanted after Phacoemulsification surgery.
Materials & Methods: The study was carried out from March 2014 to September 2014 at Lumbini Eye Institute, Shree Rana-Ambika
Shah Eye Hospital, Bhairahawa, Nepal .Sixty patients were included in the study and were equally divided in two groups. All patients
underwent Phacoemulsification with IOL implantation by a single surgeon (30 patients hydrophilic IOL and 30 hydrophobic IOL).
Results: 94% had VA of 6/12 or better unaided or with refraction, 3% developed posterior capsule thickening, whereas, none of the
patients developed Uveitis after six months.
Conclusion: There was no significant difference between two IOLs regarding VA, Uveitis and PCO after six month follow up. There
was no effect of biomaterial on PCO.
