[Article in French]


The epidemiologic data and surgical results of 253 cataract extractions performed in a new department of Ophthalmology in Eastern Senegal were reviewed. 87 per cent have been operated without hospitalization, with restricted follow up. The complication rate was low, showing that this kind of surgery was suitable to local socio-economical conditions.
