Dr. Monalisha Devi [2] | Dr. J.J Kuli

Abstract: To evaluate the visual outcome and to assess the intra ocular pressure control following cataract surgery in lens induced glaucoma. Materials and Methods: This is a hospital based prospective study of 48 patients attending and admitted in the Ophthalmology Department of Assam Medical College and Hospital, Dibrugarh between July 2017-June 2018. At presentation, visual acuity and IOP was recorded and post-operatively, the same parameters were evaluated after 1week and 1 month. Results: The best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of 6/12 or more was found in 60.42 % cases, whereas visual acuity of less than 6/60 was seen in 12.50 % cases, post-operatively at the end of 1month. BCVA of 6/12 or more was achieved in 95.23 % (p
