Abstract Details


To assess the prognostic value of a new ocular trauma score (OTS) in case of traumatic cataract in children.


K.E.M.University/ Institute of Opthalmology Mayo Hospital Lahore


At presentation certain numerical values rendered to the OTS variables included visual acuity, globe ruptured, endopthalmitis, perforating injury, retinal detachment, afferent pupillary defect at presentation were summated and converted in to OTS categories. The final visual outcome predicted the acuity in the OTS categories were calculated and the predictor were compared with actual outcome using statistical test.


A total of 40 eyes in 40 patients, 26 male (65%) and 14 female (35%) with a mean age of 6.83 ± 4.00 years (range: 1-18 years) were included in the study. After 12 weeks postoperatively final VA, which was evaluated in 38 patients, was as follows: NPL in 4 (10%) patients, LP / HM in 4 (10%) patients, 1/60 to 5/60 in 10 (20%),6/60 to 6/18 in 11(27.5%) >6/12 in 9 (22.5%). The OTS prediction was not significantly different when compared with actual visual outcome at 12 weeks postoperatively in all OTS categories.


The OTS was a reliable predictor of the final visual outcome in cases of traumatic cataract.
