Abstract:
      Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) remains the most common complication of pediatric cataract surgery despite continuous efforts to reduce its incidence. For this reason, pediatric cataract surgeons have expended considerable effort into preventing and mitigating PCO. The intraocular lens (IOL) optic capture technique has been used for the prevention of PCO after pediatric cataract surgery for more than 20y, but there is still no professional consensus. However, recent research has shown encouraging results. The IOL optic capture technique can be performed without anterior vitrectomy to prevent PCO, even in younger children. The type and characteristics of IOLs used for optic capture technique, the location of IOL and the complications of IOL optic capture in children are here reviewed.
