Abstract :

 INTRODUCTION– Cataract is the most common cause of blinness in the world. Among the cataract age is the most common risk factor and senile cataract being the most common form. Other causes of cataract are trauma, drugs , metaboloic disorders and congenital , developmental, infectous causes. Fortunately enough , cataract is treatable cause of blindness . cataract is removed surgically and an artificial intraocular lens of particular power is implanted in the eye, which is based on refractive status of a particular eye . our this study is based on this factors affecting the power of the intra ocular lens . PURPOSE– To determine the mean intraocular lens power (IOL), keratometric readings and axial length of the eyes of patients admitted for cataract surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS– The biometric data of 700 patients who were scheduled for cataract surgery in the department of ophthalmology , government medical college ,Srinagar was collected and Analysed. RESULTS– Out of 700 patients of cataract surgery ,364(52%) were males and 336(48%) were females . The mean age was 61 years .The mean keratometric readings were k1 and k2 were 43.25 and 43.75 respectively . Mode( Most common) K1 and K2 were 44 and 44 respectively. Mean axial length was 22.4 . the IOL power ranged from 5.50 D to 29 D. Mean IOL power was 21.50 D with 118.0 A constant. Conclusion –Majority of patients report to hospital in 6th –7th decade of life. Mean K1 and K2 were 43.25 and 43.75 , most common K1 and K2 were 44 and 44 respectively. Mean IOL power was 21.50 with 118.0 as A constant.
