  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated the outcome of intracapsular cat-aract surgery in a consecutive series of 7 patients (8 eyes) who had been under hemodialysis treat-ment for chronic renal insufficiency of variable causes in the past 5-year period.

There were no complications during or after sur-gery in 7 out of the 8 surgeries. In the remaining one case, delayed wound healing and secondary glaucoma due to pupillary block resulted. In this particular patient, postoperative drowsiness also occurred apparently due to accumulation of aceta-zolamide.
