Abstract

Pediatric cataracts are an important cause of decreased vision in children. Managing cataracts in childhood presents an assortment of distinct challenges. Visual prognosis depends upon a multitude of factors, including etiology, surgical variables, and postoperative rehabilitation. Morphology, location, and the age of onset can greatly assist the pediatric ophthalmologist in determining the suspected etiology. Surgical timing and approach must be tailored for each child's unique presentation. Finally, parents and caregivers play an incredibly important role in vision outcomes. A thorough and candid discussion must take place to ensure everyone is actively engaged in the postoperative management of the aphakic or pseudophakic child.
