Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is one of the most common complications of modern cataract surgery. During the last 25 years, there has been a significant decrease of the PCO rate. While it has read in the 30% to 50% range in the 1980s and early 1990s, it decreased to 25% to 30% by the mid-1990s, and when associated with good surgical technique, it has dropped to less than 10% at present.
