Abstract Little has been written of the results of the extraction of cataracts in the capsule at the hands of operators outside the major clinics. We are therefore reporting on 100 consecutive operations from our practice. Many inexperienced operators have been discouraged from attempting intracapsular delivery because of the common understanding that it is too hazardous for use by men without unlimited material. Statements to this effect passed without comment as recently as the last meeting of this section. Furthermore, a number of careful analyses1 have appeared, comparing the results of intracapsular extraction with those of capsulotomy performed by the same surgeons, which rather justify continuing with the orthodox technic. Unfortunately there is a considerable group of cases for which it is unsuited. These are, of course, the cases of immature cataracts. For patients thus incapacitated, only the intracapsular operation has general approval. It was for them that we References 1. Parker, W.
