  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed cataract surgery on the outpatient basis on 33 eyes of 23 patients with systemic or eye complica-tions. Systemic complications comprised systemic hypertension 24 eyes, diabetes mellitus 11 eyes and asthma 3 eyes. Eye complications included primary open angle glaucoma 4 eyes and history of vitrectomy 1 eye. There were no differences regarding postoperative visual acuity, intraocular pressure, aqueous flare or corneal endothelial cell population compared with 41 eyes of 35 cataract patients without complications. Some cases manifested aggravation of systemic complications. We advocate suitable measures for such situations when performing outpatient cataract surgery.
