Obtained parameters included age, gender and clinical features of patients, intraoperative and postoperative complications. Results: The mean age of the study group [592 (54%) female and 508 (46%) male patients] was 68.34 ± 3.8 years. Among to the study group, cases with diabetes mellitus (n = 249) and cases with pseudoexfoliation (n=101) showed a significantly higher intraoperative complication rates. In cases with previous uveitic history (n = 42), the complication rate was not significantly different. The occurrence rate of postoperative complication in the first postoperative day and first postoperative month was 383 (32%) and 34 (2.8%), respectively. The most common postoperative complications were cornea l edema in the first day and intraocular pressure elevation in the first month. While the visual acuity of 0.5 or higher was in 249 (20.8%) cases preoperatively, this level was obtained in 798 (66.7%) cases at postoperative first month. Foldable intraocular lens implantation was performed in 90.7% of the cases.
