The choice of implant must take special conditions into consideration. Pseudoexfoliation with its risk of phimosis of the anterior capsule, suggests implantation of lenses with PMMA haptics, providing greater resistance to capsular contraction. Silicone IOLs should be avoided as they create greater stimulation of capsular contraction (see Chapter 4). In short eyes with IOLs of high dioptric power, a double or piggyback lens may be required so that the sum of the 2 powers is equivalent to the total power needed (see Chapter 9).
