In a randomized clinical trial, 30 eyes with traumatic cataract after open globe injury with
IOL implantation underwent early and 30 eyes underwent late cataract surgery. We excluded
patients who were under 12-year-old. All patients were visited at 1week, 4 weeks , 12 weeks
and six months after surgery. In each visit, patients were examined regarding visual acuity,
intraocular pressure (IOP), anterior chamber inflammation, IOL position and posterior
synechiae. In addition, posterior segment evaluation and funduscopy were performed.
Intraoperative complication including posterior capsular rupture, anterior vitrectomy and
zonulysis as well as the site of IOL implantation were documented and postoperative
complications including raised IOP, anterior chamber inflammation, visual axis opacity,
posterior synechiae, subluxation of IOL, IOL pigment deposition were listed.
