Surgical Management of Pediatric Cataracts
Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus, Cataract/Anterior Segment
2 Self-Assessment AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
The timing of a surgical intervention in visually significant congenital cataracts depends not only on the age of onset of the opacity, but also on whether the condition is unilateral or bilateral. A critical period of visual development follows the latent period, rendering a significant visual setback if the visual axis is not cleared by this point. Topics in this course include wound construction, IOL selection, and management of complications.
