Risks of PCOand dysphotopsia
TO : John C Hagan III, MD, FACS, FAAO

After a retinal reattachment surgery, my physician told me that a cataract is developing in my left eye. I plan to undergo a cataract surgery in coming March.

I am afraid that I have PCO (posterior capsular opacification) and dysphotopsia after cataract surgery. I have two questions now.

I}Taking into consideration in reducing both risks of PCO and dysphotopsia, among the following AMO’s monofocal lens, which one is the best? and which one is the second best? or any suggestion.
1) AMO Sensar AR40e
2) Tecnis Acrylic IOL (ZA9003)
3) Tecnis CL IOL (Z9002)
4) Tecnis 1-piece IOL (ZCB00)
5) AMO HSM60

II) What are the benefits/advantages of using silicone IOL over acrylic one?

Your advice is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
