Background: Cataract surgery lens implantation is the most common eye surgery that good quality of operation can help good visual outcome. One of the most common complication following cataract surgery is uveitis that usualy occur in first few weeks after operation. The aim of the present study was to compare the incidence of the post operative uveitis between viscoelastic substance and air in ECCETPCIOL Materials & methods: This prospective study was carried out in 280 patients (pt’s) candidate for cataract surgery. lens implatation pt’s divided randomly in two groups. Group A: Viscoelastic substances were used. Group B: Normal air of operation room were used. All pt’s were examined once per week up to four weeks after operation. We advised pt’s in case of bluring of vision/pain redness immediately come for urgent visit too. Analysis of data was done based on SPSS. Results: Out of 280 pt’s, 140 pt were male and 140 pt were female. Theirs age were between 20-110 years. 33 pt’s out of 280 pt’s suffered from uveitis (11.78%). In group A 12.85% suffered from uveitis and in group B 10.71% suffered from uveitis. Z Fisher test did not show significant differences between the two groups. Other operative complications such as of IOP also did not show significant differences between the two groups. Conclusion: Due to, there was no significante differences in post operative uveitis between two groups, and also access to air is easy and gell is expensive, we advise use of air for lens implantation during cataract operation.
