Which of the following is a contraindication to IOL implantation?(AIIMS May 2012)
|C||Myopia of -20 D|
|D||Age >70 yrs|
myopia > -20 D requires only clear lens extraction with no need for IOL. Although the intra-ocular inflammation caused by cataract surgery could exacerbate the retinopathy in diabetics, DR is not a contraindication to IOL implantation. Nowadays, IOL is being implanted even in neonates.
