In a group of 15 patients who had to undergo cataract intervention, retinometer λ 100 test and VEPs were carried out. We have evaluated the variation of the results obtained at three different times (the day before, the following day and a month after the operation) and the ability of these two examinations to predict visual acuity achieved after the operation. The combined use of these examinations, the lambda as a screening test and the VEPs as control of the cases which gave a low result with the retinometer test, allowed us to foresee the achievement or not of a good visual acuity (5/10) in all the 15 patients.
