Objective: to identify the profile of patients undergoing cataract surgery at university hospital in the city of Taubaté-SP. Method: this is about a retrospective, documentary study, from quantitative approach, approved by the Ethics in Research of the University of Taubaté, Taubaté-SP, protocol number 066/09. Were evaluated 252 records (100%) of patients undergoing cataract surgery, a total of 291 eyes, in the period 2008. Results: the age group 70-79 years, females predominant 135 (53.57%), caucasian in 140 (55.55%), occupation was retired in 160 (63 49%). The prevalent type of cataract, as the morphology was the corticonuclear in 311 (60.39%), visual impairment was found in 190 (62.09%) patients, among the systemic diseases, hypertension appeared in 111 (42.21%). Anesthesia was predominant peribulbar block in 288 (98.97%), the most widely used surgical technique, phacoemulsification, in 185 (63.57%). Conclusion: predominantly females, between 70 and 79 years, Caucasian, most retirees, and type of cataract was corticonuclear. Visual acuity preoperative was counting fingers at meters; the corrective surgery, phacoemulsification; anesthesia, peribulbar; hypertension was the underlying pathology; visual acuity in the late postoperative period, 1.0; and the complication was posterior capsule rupture.
