Abstract



The results of extracapsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens implant at the Jos University Teaching Hospital are reviewed. The results suggest that despite lack of facilities to calculate the lens power for emmetropia, the use of a standard lens of about 19.0D will provide a good number of our patients with good functional vision and a quick return to independent life
