Abstract

Congenital cataract is a major cause of treatable blindness in the pediatric population worldwide. Advances in microsurgical techniques have significantly increased the success rate of surgery. However, visual rehabilitation outcomes are not always satisfactory even after a successful surgery. Due to delayed surgery, irrational aphakic correction, and lack of amblyopic training, a large number of infants in China remain blind or low-visioned after cataract surgery. Appropriate timing of surgical intervention, rational surgical methodology as well as systematic optical correction and amblyopic training are critical for the prevention of blindness and low vision in congenital cataract.
