Bilateral cataract extraction (BCE) with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation (PCIOL) were performed on 252 patients (504 eyes). Comparison our findings with that of unila- teral cataract surgery revealed no untoward complications. Furthermore, the results of bilateral cataract surgery was found reliable and predictable. The study was retrospective and conducted over a 7 years period.
No major intra or post operative complications related to surgical procedure was encountered.
The incidence of minor intraoperative complications observed in 7.34% of the patients.
The results were encouraging and indicative of safety and efficiency of this procedure. Final visual acuity of 20/40 or better was achieved in 86.7% of the patients.
Our results in this study suggested that there are no specific intra or postoperative risk factors of bilateral cataract surgery and the visual results are good. We therefore conclude that if the operation is indicated, under particular plan this procedure is practicable.
