Visual Rehabilitation optimization is the main goal of cataract management in children. To achieve the optimum vision development, cataract management in children does not come to an end by the time a cataract surgery is performed. In most cases, problems occurring in vision rehabilitations include posterior capsule opacifications in post-surgery children cataract patients. Objective To know the profile of posterior capsule opacification in developmental cataract surgeries of children (aged 5- 18) at Cicendo National Eye Hospital in January-December 2016. Method: The design of this study is observational retrospective study using medical records of post-operative developmental cataracts patients with intra ocular lens implantations with inclusion and exclusion criteria. The procedures were performed on 74 eyes in 47 patients. Results: Posterior capsule opacification (OPC) occurred in 41 (55.4%) eyes, detected in week 1-36 post-op. In week 0-6 post-op, OPC occurred the most to the tune of 13 (31.7%) eyes with dominating age group of under 9 years old to the tune of 29 (68.3%) eyes. Conclusion: PCO shows a tendency of occurring more in younger patients. Factors which affect PCO include complications, e.g. eye abnormalities, the relating systemic abnormalities, surgery techniques, and inaccurate selection of intra-ocular lens.
