Abstract The problem of phacomorphic glaucoma is a rather common entity in rural India owing to the delay in getting the cataract removed and the preponderance of cortical matter, compared with the Western world. The authors in India, South East Asia and Australia, have managed the problem differently leading to controversies. The pathogenesis has been investigated and is well understood. An aspect of phacomorphic glaucoma that remains quite unanswered, is of the relatively poor visual outcome and increased incidence of operative and post-operative complications. We endeavour to evaluate the management, intraoperative and post-operative complications of phacomorphic glaucoma (senile cataract induced). The effect of high intraocular pressure (I.O.P) and surgical trauma on the corneal endothelium is also assessed.
