  • Look Inside

We reviewed the outcome of surgery for complicated cataract in 56 eyes of 35 patients with Behçet disease. The age at surgery averagd 49.6 years. Cases were followed up for an average of 59 months postoperatively. Acute ocular attacks developed in 29 eyes (52%) after surgry. All the eyes which were operated within 3 months after the last attack developed attacks postoperatively. Eyes which were operated within 6 months after the last attack developed significantly more postoperative attacks than those which were operated later. Improvement in visual acuity by 2 lines or more was obtained on 88% of eyes at 3 months after surgery and in 68% of eyes at the final evaluation. Final visual outcome was independent of surgical modality, implantation of intraocular lens, or medication before and after surgery.
