The present study aimed to assess the frequency of systemic and ocular co-morbidities among the cataract surgery patients in our college and research institute over a period of 12 months. The cross-sectional study was carried out by descriptive analysis of medical records of 448 cataract patients who underwent cataract surgery in our college and research institute between July 2015 and June 2016 by a single surgeon (GK). The results of this study indicate a high prevalence of Non-Communicable Disease in patients operated for cataract surgery in our region and ocular co-morbidities among them. This would be helpful in planning and allocating the resources for effective management of cataract patients. A meticulous preoperative examination and postoperative follow-up might lead to better results and improved quality of life for cataract patients.
