  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed a series of 79 cases who received simultaneous bilateral cataract surgery to assess the safetyand problems of this procedure. The cases were free of other eye disorders. The ages ranged from 45 to 92 years, average76years. A foldable intraocular lens was inserted following instillation anesthesia and temporal small-incision. Complica-tions of significance were consistently absent. The postoperative visual acuity and inflammation were comparable withthose following unilateral surgery. Simultaneous bilateral cataract surgery may be a procedure of choice when properlyplanned and executed.
