Abstract

The management of congenital cataracts at the Wilmer Institute is presented, with emphasis on the need for careful preoperative assessment. The indications and techniques for surgery in uncomplicated cataracts are discussed, and the advantages of using vitrectomy instruments in complicated congenital cataracts, such as those associated with persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous, are described.
