A look at the past . . .

Arch Ophthalmol. 2000;118(7):968. doi:10-1001/pubs.Ophthalmol.-ISSN-0003-9950-118-7-eya00005

Attempts have been made to determine with the slitlamp the suitability of a cataract for intracapsular operation, and Rohrschneider stated that the presence of water clefts makes the cataract unsuitable for the intracapsular operation in a large proportion of cases and that the nuclear and posterior subcapsular vacuoles and coronaria opacities. The most important point is the patient's age, and the best results are in persons over 60 years of age.
