Aims: Evaluating the role of intracameral solution(0.5% lignocaine and 0.001% epinephrine) in initiating and maintaining the pupillary mydriasis during phaecoemulsification. The other aims were to observe the effect of surgical time,nucleus density and ultrasound time on mydriasis during procedure. Setting and design: The study is a prospective interventional case series. Materials and methods: 30 patients underwent phaecoemlsification under topical anaesthesia for visual significant cataract. pupillary dilatation was achieved by intracameral irriation of mydriatic solution. Conclusion: Intracaeral solution of 0.5% linnocaine and 0.001% epinephrine provides rapid mydriasis which is adequate for safe phaecoemulsification
