Abstract: 

Some Leprotic eye lesions are reported to be progressive in nature even after mycobacterial cure. During last 3 years 980 cured leprosy patients were examined of which 120 patients were followed up every year (2011,2012,2013) Results: 1% per increase in leprosy related eye lesion (Lagophthalmos, keratitis, posterior synechia). 2.5% increase in significant cataract (VA<6/18) 1.5% patients developed ocular morbidity and 0.6%cases became blind. Nonleprotic lesions were however more pronounced (5%) e.g., refractive error, posterior capsular opacification, secondary glaucoma, Keratomalacia etc. Conclusion: Nonleprotic ocular lesions were progressing as in normal population and some Leprotic lesions due to neural damage were progressive and needs special attention from the time of release from treatment.
