Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the surgical and visual outcome of manual small incision cataract surgery in patients with posterior polar cataract.
Material and Methods:A prospective study was conducted from June 2018 to August 2018. 26 eyes of 26 patients underwent surgery at our hospital were included in our study. All patients underwent complete ophthalmologic examination which included visual acuity, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, IOP and fundoscopy. Patients with complicated cataract, glaucoma, corneal opacity/ degeneration, retinal pathology were excluded. Patients were scheduled for manual SICS. Informed consent was obtained from all the patients.
Results:26 eyes of 26 patients were included in the study. There were 19 males (73.07%) and 7 females (26.92%). The mean age was 53.5 (range 37-70) years. The most common intraoperative complication was posterior capsule rupture, seen in 3 eyes (11.53%). The intraocular lenses were implanted in the sulcus in those 3 patients and rest in the bag implantation was done.1 eye needed anterior vitrectomy. The mean visual acuity improved significantly after surgery.
Conclusion: Posterior polar cataract is a great challenge for cataract surgeons. The visual outcome is good if done carefully with proper technique advised for PPC.
