Follow up examination was done in 54 eyes of leprosy patients in So-Rok Do National Leprosarium that were operated on for complicated cataract two years six months ago. Their visions were then H.M. or L.p., Results were as follows: 1) 21 eyes have more than 0.1 of corrected vision (table 1). 2) 16 eyes have corrected vision from F.C. to O.08 (table II). 3) 4 eyes have vision of H.M. and 2 eyes that of L.P. 11 eyes were blind. Results are often relatively good if operation for complicated cataract of Leprosy patients is performed.
