Abstract: Charitable organizations like ours, Sankara Eye Hospital, Ludhiana, Punjab, conduct free eye camps for cataract surgeries for the low socioeconomic patients in rural areas. Though SICS remains the ideal surgical technique in camp patients, recently sometimes patients are treated with clear corneal Phacoemulsification with implantation of rigid IOL. This study hence aims to find out the most suited surgical technique for high volume camp cases.
