Abstract:

Cataract is the leading cause of reversible blindness and visual impairment in both humans and canines. The only treatment of choice for cataract is surgical intervention. Phacoemulsification along with implantation of artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is considered as the gold standard surgical technique for the management of cataract throughout the world. By following the superior surgical technique as well as using high quality IOL also, there could be a chance of formation of posterior capsular opacification (PCO) from months to years’ post-surgery. Many of the trial and errors have been carried out to prevent or arrest the PCO. Placement of capsular tension ring (CTR) in the lens capsule has been considered one among them.
