Hi. PPC stands for posterior pole cataract when the posterior part of the lens becomes opaque. The old lens is removed and a new one is placed in its place. It is nowadays a day procedure in advanced centres and a good quality surgery using good material at a good center in New Delhi would cost between Rs. 20,000 to 30,000 for one eye (excluding unnecessary frills & luxuries).
