Introduction: There are 1.5 million blind children (corrected visual acuity <20>
Aims and Objective: Purpose of this study is to evaluate foldable hydrophilic and hydrophobic acrylic IOLs implantation in pediatric cataract surgery and to know the incidence of complication in both groups.
Materials and Methods: it is a randomised prospective study over a period of one year and collection of patients done in outpatient Department of Ophthalmology at BRDMC, Gorakhpur.
Results: The study has been carried out on 40 eyes of 27 patient with pediatric cataract divided into two groups (n=20) each group patient undergone phacoaspiration, primary posterior capsulotomy, and anterior vitrectomy by single surgeon with implantation of hydrophilic and hydrophobic iols respectively after one year study we found that The incidence of complications are more in hydrophilic iol than in hydrophobic iol like percentage of PCO was 80% and 20% (p<0>0.05, insignificant). So our study concluded that hydrophobic iols are better than hydrophilic iols.
