Ram and coworkers 17 evaluated the effect of primary posterior capsulotomy with anterior vitrectomy and various IOL materials in 64 eyes of 52 children aged 3 months to 12 years in terms of development of PCO at least 2 years after cataract surgery.

The major problem with hydrophilic IOLs is the low capsular biocompatibility, but with appro-priate posterior capsule management performing at least 4 mm posterior capsulotomy and limited anterior vitrectomy, we encountered no case of VAO.
