Analysis of complications in 1000 cases of primary posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation done, during a period of one year was undertaken for the study. The cases included uncomplicated as well as those with various associated conditions like diabetes, traumatic cataracts, complicated cataracts, myopia and develop­mental cataracts. The important postoperative complica­tions were uveitis (9%), endophthalmitis (0.5%), malposition of IOL (2.8%) and cystoid macular edema (0.3 %). Posterior capsule opacification was seen in 11.5 % of cases and was treated by YAG laser capsulotomy. More than 80% cases had 6/6-6/12 vision. In our ex­perience posterior chamber IOL implantation has become an extremely successful and satisfying procedure along with the availability of YAG laser facility to manage posterior capsule opacification.
