Abstract BACKGROUND: In 2019 the German Commission for the Prevention of Blindness (DKVB) held an eye camp in the Tanzanian town of Sumbawanga. For patients with mature cataracts and the ability to see light cateracts were treated by manual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS). For the first time in this camp the quality of the results of the cataract operations was measured. OBJECTIVE: The quality of the cataract operations is presented and the results were assessed in the context of the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO). METHODS: Those patients who had a cataract operation in th...

ConclusionsAll lenses showed excellent surface quality. After folding and injection process some superficial scratches and tears of the IOL optic were detected in some models. Further studies are needed to assess the possible effects of those superficial damages on the optical quality of the IOLs.
