Ocular manifestations are one of the causes of morbidity among patients having End Stage Renal disease (ESRD).1 This study is to determine the incidence of ocular abnormalities in Renal Transplant patients prior to transplant and 3rd & 6th months after renal transplant to correlate them with underlying cause of renal insufficiency, and duration and type of immunosuppressive agents. It is common in both developed countries (32 million per population) and under developed (150 per million population).2
Methods: 120 eyes of 60 patients of ESRD fit for renal transplant were examined prior and after renal transplant. A comparative study of ocular abnormalities was done prior to transplant and 3rd and 6th month after renal transplant. A predesigned questionnaire was made to collect all the necessary information; duration of disease, number of dialysis, and an ophthalmic examination was done prior to renal transplant. All patients underwent complete ophthalmic examination for evaluation of the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure (IOP), Fundus and anterior & posterior segment.
