Congenital cataracts--management and visual results (Cape Town 1956-1976).


A survey of 123 patients with congenital cataracts treated at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital in Cape Town between 1956 and 1976. The various factors influencing the functional prognosis were examined and correlated with the final visual outcome. Practicalities, both pre- and postoperative, involved in the management of these cases are discussed. Parental motivation and cooperation throughout the period of treatment is emphasized.
