The authors evaluate in the submitted paper phakoemulsification in 55 eyesoperated in 1998-1999, i.e. 2.94% of all phakoemulsified eyes. They investigate theincidence of peroperative 10.9% and postoperative 23.6% complications, their mostfrequent cause being manipulation with the narrow pupil.Although the incidenceof peroperative complications is higher than in the group without pseudoexfoli-ation, similalry as the incidence of inflammatory reactions, which receded in themajority of patients within 7 days, phakoemulsification can be considerd as a safeand effective surgical method of cataract in pseudoexfoliative syndrome. Thesurgeon´s experience is an important factor.
