BACKGROUND: There are different complications of the cataract surgery described in the literature. The impact of these complications on the visual function is in correlation with many factors, some of them being imprecise and unable to be used as prognostic factors before and after the surgery. The modern technique and the surgeon’s experience lowers the complications incidence to a minimum, but even so, some problems cannot be avoided. AIM: The aim of this study is to analyse the early cataract surgery complications for patients operated in 2012 at the Ophthalmology Unit, Railway Hospital, Iaşi. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We conducted a retrospective analysis of the medical records of the patients who underwent cataract surgery in 2012. There were a total of 480 cataract surgeries, the majority of them (92,7%) being age related cataracts in different stages of evolution, of which 31.45% being mature cataracts. In 476 eyes, artificial lens was inserted per-primam (474 eyes with posterior chamber intraocular lens and 2 eyes with anterior chamber intraocular lens), in one case the posterior chamber intraocular lens was sutured to the sclera, in 3 cases the eyes remained without lens. RESULTS: The incidence of severe complications or with potential of severe development was: severe corneal oedema 0.83% (4 cases), remaining lens fragments in the vitreous cavity 0.62% (3 cases), toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS) 0.41% (2 cases). There were no endophthalmitis, expulsive haemorhage or retinal detachment after cataract surgery. CONCLUSIONS: The number of early complications of our patients is the same with numbers shown in other studies. With a better surgical technique, a good examination of the patient, a thorough explanation of the procedure to the patient, the use of high quality substances during surgery and proper technology we can lower even more the incidence of the complications.
