Ocular complications in renal allograft recipients are a significant cause of morbidity. Of 80 renal transplant recipients, 42 (52.5%) developed ocular complications. These included posterior subcapsular cataract in 22 patients (27.5%), opportunistic ocular infections by CMV, cryptococcus, mucormycosis, herpes simplex and herpes zoster in five (6.25%), steroid-induced raised intraocular pressure in four (5%) and primary disease-related vascular complications in ten (12.5%). Our findings highlight the importance of regular ocular examination of all allograft recipients in the post-transplant period.
