SUMMARY

Two series of patients submitted to extracapsular cataract extraction with implantation of a posterior chamber lens were studied. All the cases were operated by the author who employed the same surgical technique in both series. The only difference was in the way the incision was closed. In Series I, five "X" sutures were utilized. ln Series two, the closing of the wound consisted of three interrupted sutures from 11 to 1 o' clock and two "X" sutures on each side. The dioptric power of the induced astigmatism was lower in the second series (1,13D against 1,62D). The differences verified in relation to the axis observed in the two series and the possible practical application of the present study are discussed.
