Aim: To study the visual and surgical outcomes in non-sutured secondary posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation (PC IOLS). Materials and Methods: Retrospective analysis of 100 cases of non-sutured secondary PC IOLS done between June 2007 to June 2008 at tertiary eye hospital. Results: 97% of patients had excellent visual and surgical results with non-sutured secondary PCIOL implantation. Conclusion: Our study shows the importance of aborting primary IOL implantation in the event of intra-operative posterior capsular rupture with doubtful capsular support, followed by a postoperative assessment, and good surgical technique can give excellent results in secondary PC IOL Implantation. Long-term complications are similar to primary PC IOL implantation.
