Purpose : We describe a technique for achieving pupillary dilatation in order to manage and counteract intraoperative miosis during pediatric cataract surgery using viscoadaptive viscoelastic (sodium hyaluronate 2.3%). Materials and Methods : The technique of viscomydriasis was used in six eyes with pediatric cataracts with intraoperative pupillary miosis. Results : Pupillary dilatation was achieved and maintained in all eyes throughout cataract surgery. All the surgical steps including anterior and posterior capsulorrhexis and aspiration were performed successfully. Conclusions : Viscomydriasis is a simple and effective technique for the management of intraoperative pupillary miosis during cataract surgery in pediatric eyes.
