Introduction: Cataract with comorbidity having poor prognosis, it is important to predict visual outcome in these eyes. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective cohort study to develop scoring system to predict visual outcome in case of cataracts with comorbidities. We enrolled all cataracts with comorbidities fulfilling inclusion criteria between August 2019 and 2020. For all enrolled cases, data were collected in pretested online format in electronic medical records. A specially designed form was used to calculate preoperative score which was categorized and compared with postoperative visual outcome. All data were exported and analyzed with SPSS 22 using descriptive, cross-tabulation, and one-sample test functions. Results: Our cohort consisted of 230 eyes of 230 patients with a mean age of 44 ± 21.22 years with 121/230 (52.6%) females and 109/230 (47.4%) males. Out of total 230 eyes Traumatic cataracts were in 64, cataract with corneal opacity in 45, postuveitic cataract in 43, neglected cataracts in 39 eyes. We found a significant difference in pre- and postoperative visual outcome. When we studied preoperative score, we found a significant difference between outcomes. Conclusion: Preoperative score for cataracts with comorbidities undergoing small-incision cataract surgery SICS is a very useful tool to predict visual outcome and universalize for comparison.
