Clinical study on the cases of traumatic cataract and its management

Monika Jasrotia, Suridhi Jasrotia

Abstract: Traumatic cataract is one of the common complication after ocular injury. It is the leading cause of uniocular visual loss. A study was done to know the clinical outcome of traumatic cataract. Aim: To know the incidence of traumatic cataract in the age group of 10-70 years, complications due to traumatic cataract and visual prognosis following cataract extraction with intraocular lens implantation. Methods: Fourty five cases (10-70 years) with traumatic cataract were analysed from the period of January 2019 to January 2020. Age, gender, preoperative and postoperative vision and complications were analysed. Results: Out of 45 cases of traumatic cataract, 31 cases (68.89%) were males and 14 cases (31.11%) were females. Most of the cases i.e., 42 had total cataract. Corneal injuries (54%) and iris related problems (28%) were the most common complications. Small incision cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation was performed in these cases. Visual acuity improved from PL PR preoperatively to 6/18 or above in 82.97% postoperatively. Conclusions: Small incision cataract extraction with IOL implantation gives good results in traumatic cataract. The main cause for impaired vision was corneal opacity obstructing visual axis and posterior capsule opacification.
