PC IOLs appear to be safe and effective and there are few contraindications. Based on the available data we feel confident about implanting PC IOLs in healthy eyes of patients aged 40 or older. For younger patients, we do not recommended an IOL unless glasses or contact lens use is not feasible. Caution is urged however in the use of semiflexible, closed-loop AC IOLs as well as 'soft' PC IOLs. Other questions regarding material of choice, bag versus sulcus fixation, and UV absorbers remain controversial.
