    Abstract

    Ten cataract extractions were performed on eight patients for whom warfarin was not discontinued prior to surgery. Three were complicated by hyphaema. No retrobulbar haemorrhages occurred in the four cases given a local anaesthetic. Cataract surgery can be performed successfully without discontinuing warfarin.
