Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Purpose: To present the case of a 6-year-old child who presented with a traumatic cataract and was treated with trifocal toric intra-ocular lens implantation. Observations: The child's uncorrected distance visual acuity improved from +0.7 logMAR preoperatively to 0.00 logMAR after cataract surgery, with spectacle independence and no reported side effects Conclusions and importance: In carefully selected pediatric patients with traumatic cataracts, trifocal toric intra-ocular lenses may offer some benefit over standard monofocal lenses
