This paper demonstrates the wide variety of systems for the analysis of posterior capsular opacification (PCO). No single system has been proved to be a gold standard and it is difficult to comment on the advantages of one system over another with the limited current knowledge on the effects of PCO on vision. There are few studies that actually compare the different systems of analysis. Researchers must ensure that the systems they use for PCO analysis are objective and must give maximum consideration to ensuring potential systematic errors are reduced to a minimum. Further research is required into how the various types and locations of PCO affect vision and how well different systems of analysis perform.
