ABSTRACT Purpose: The purpose of the study is to evaluate the long‑term changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) after extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) implantation versus phacoemulsification with PCIOL implantation in otherwise normal cataract patients in India. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted in the Department of Ophthalmology, King George’s Medical College, Lucknow between August 2000 and August 2001. One hundred and seventeen eyes of 115 patients were included in the study. 84 patients were randomly selected for ECCE with PCIOL implantation (ECCE group) and 31 patients were selected for phacoemulsification with PCIOL implantation (Phaco group). IOP was measured pre‑operatively and post‑operatively, from the 1st month to the 12th month. Statistical significance was indicated by P
