  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 75 eyes in 52 cases of atopic cataract operated in two institutions. All the cases were aged 35 years or less. Retinal detachment was detected in 11 eyes in 9 males and 2 females. Atopic cataract without retinal detach-ment was present in 45 males (70%) and 19 females (30%). Both eyes were equally involved. The finding shows that males are more prone to develop advanced atopic cataract than females.
