Background: We evaluated cases that underwent congenital cataract surgeryin terms of the surgical technique, post-operative complications, and visual prognosis. Material/Methods:We retrospectively evaluated 132 eyes in 76 patients with congenital cataracts who underwent cataractsurgery between January 1995 and December 2000. The patient age at surgery, surgical technique, post-operativecomplications, and final visual prognosis were evaluated. Results: Thirty eyes underwent aspiration,posterior capsulotomy, and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation; 22 eyes underwent aspiration and posteriorcapsulotomy; 39 eyes underwent aspiration, posterior capsulotomy, and anterior vitrectomy; and 41 eyesunderwent aspiration, posterior capsulotomy, anterior vitrectomy, and IOL implantation. The most frequentcomplications were secondary cataract (24.2%), posterior synechiae (9.1%), and glaucoma (3%). Groupswere compared according to surgical technique and incidence of complications. Complications occurredmost frequently with aspiration and posterior capsulotomy and occurred less frequently with aspiration,posterior capsulotomy, and anterior vitrectomy; these differences were statistically significant (p
