50 eyes of 50 patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome were studied in order to note incidence of different intraoperative complications during cataract surgery, early postoperative complications and best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and also the measures to minimize the incidence of complications. Our study concluded that pseudoexfoliation is commonly seen in old age, usually a bilateral condition with male predominance. Pseudoexfoliation leads to difficulty in achieving adequate pupil dilatation and thus leads to various intraoperative complications and poor outcome after surgery. Thus in patients with pseudoexfoliation detailed preoperative evaluation, good communication with patients regarding surgical risks and proper management of intraoperative and postoperative complications are needed to improve surgical outcomes.

Key words: Pseudoexfoliation, pupillary dilatation, intraoperative complications.
