  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 21 eyes in 14 patients with Behçet disease who underwent cataract surgery during the foregoing 4 years. Intracapsular cataract extraction was performed in 7 eyes, intracapsular extraction in 5 and phacoemulsification and aspiration with intraocular lens implantation in 9. The ages ranged from 38 to 57 years, average 45 years. The follow-up period ranged from 6 to 52 months, average 26 months. There was no difference in the frequency of ocular attacks after surgery among these three procedures. No deterioration in visual acuity set in after surgery in all the eyes. Intraocular lens implantation is one of the choices for cataract surgery in patients with Behçet disease.
