UNLABELLED
The purpose of the study is to make a comparison in the evolution of AC-IOL per primam and per secundam.

MATERIAL AND METHOD
We reviewed 50 cases operated in the University Clinic of Ophthalmology from Cluj-Napoca since 1995-1996, 35 managed with primary and 15 with secondary AC-IOLs.

RESULTS
Early and late postoperative complications are frequently present at the primary AC-IOLs. Explanation was performed in 2 cases. The functional results were superior at secondary AC-IOLs.

CONCLUSIONS
AC-IOL is the solution to be chosen in case of intraoperative complication (loss of vitreous). Secondary AC-IOL is to be preferred because the postoperative complications are fewer and the functional results are better.
