Sir,

We thank the authors for their interest in our study. Side port is routinely used by us for capsulorhexis as well as for aspiration of sub incisional cortex (which is a routine practice by many surgeons who perform manual small incision cataract surgery). Sub-conjunctival antibiotics and steroids is not a universal practice and simple apposition of reflected conjunctiva by gentle diathermy is done by us. Patching is a must for six hours and continuing beyond that is the surgeon's clinical decision. [1]

Comment on post-operative topical regimen is well suggested. But it does not alter the aim and conclusion of the study, which is about intra-operative bacterial contamination of anterior chamber and the comparison between well controlled diabetics and non-diabetics.
