AB  - INTRODUCTION: Traumatic cataract is a serious condition because it can cause
      partial or total vision loss. Our study aims to assess the postoperative
      functional outcomes of patients undergoing surgery for traumatic cataract in the 
      Central region of Togo. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study based on the 
      analysis of medical records of patients who underwent surgical treatment for
      traumatic cataract in hospital based and outreach eye care services between 1
      January 2009 and 30 June 2011. RESULTS: Out of a total of 1086 cases with
      cataract undergoing surgery during this period, 131 (12.06%) had traumatic
      cataract. The average age was 30.01 +/- 16.61 years, ranging betrween 5 and 70
      years, 85% of patients underwent implantation with good or average success rates 
      of 66% after correction in the first postoperative day (according to WHO
      classification). At two months follow up, 85% of patients had visual acuity above
      3/10. CONCLUSION: Despite micro-ophthalmic surgery advances, access to traumatic 
      cataract surgery remains difficult for both the patient and the practitioner,
      especially in developing countries. For these reasons priority must be given to
      ocular trauma prevention.
