dc.description.abstractModern implant surgery for cataract by trained ophthalmologists gives excellent results in the vast majority of patients. All eye surgeons have a grave responsibility to ensure that blinding complications are avoided. The major blinding postoperative complications include endophthalmitis, problems with lens implants, corneal decompensation, uveitis and glaucoma, retinal complications and inadequate microsurgical training. The most disastrous of these is postoperative endophthalmitis which is preventable and can result in total blindness.
