Abstract: The cases presented over a period of 24 months from March 2013 to February 2015 to the Small Animal Ophthalmology unit of the Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital, Chennai, were screened for the incidence and stage of cataract. Twenty four co-operative dogs with good owner compliance were selected from the cases of cataract based on the suitability for anaesthesia. They were divided randomly into two groups consisting of twelve dogs each and each group was again sub divided into subgroup A (nondiabetic) and subgroup B (diabetic) consisting of six dogs each. One group was subjected to endophacoemulsification with the implantation of multifocal hydrophilic intraocular lenses while the other group was subjected to endophacoemulsification with the implantation of multifocal hydrophobic lenses. The complications recorded were intra operative miosis, hyphema and post operative aqueous flare, fibrin deposits, IOL decentration, posterior synechia, intraocular hemorrhage, endophthalmitis and PCO.
