Epithelial cell counting was performed in 47 fragments from lens anterior capsules obtained during extracapsular and intercapsular surgery. Mean cell count was 3,277 cell/mm2; there was no correlation between cell number and age and no significant difference in cell counts between extracapsular and intercapsular surgery. There were, however, significant differences between advanced cataracts and the other cataract types (2,947 vs. 3,356). This may be important in explaining the differences in regenerative opacification of the posterior capsule in the different types of cataracts.
