Cataract associated with type-1 diabetes mellitus in the pediatric population.
Although cataract formation in type-1 diabetes is rare, it is treatable and potentially sight-saving in young children and adolescents.
Adherence to occlusion therapy in the first six months of follow-up and visual acuity among participants in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study (IATS).
It is shown that adherence to patching during the first 6 months after surgery is associated with better grating visual acuity at 12 months of age after treatment for unilateral cataract and that implanting an intraocular lens is not associated with adherence.
Stereopsis results at 4.5 years of age in the infant aphakia treatment study.
Early surgery for unilateral congenital cataract and the presence of visual acuity better than or equal to 20/40 appear to be more important than the type of initial optical correction used for the development of stereopsis.
Cost of intraocular lens versus contact lens treatment after unilateral congenital cataract surgery in the infant aphakia treatment study at age 5 years.
PURPOSE To analyze differences in the cost of treatment for infants randomized to primary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation versus optical correction with a contact lens (CL) after unilateral
Long-term Effect of Intraocular Lens vs Contact Lens Correction on Visual Acuity After Cataract Surgery During Infancy: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
Visual acuity outcomes were highly variable with only 27 children achieving excellent visual acuity in their treated eye and 50 children having poor vision in the treated eye, and Implanting an IOL at the time of cataract extraction was neither beneficial nor detrimental to the visual outcome.
Cataracts and glaucoma in patients with oculocerebrorenal syndrome.
Early identification and surgical removal of cataracts is recommended in patients with oculocerebrorenal syndrome, and visual acuity results will only rarely be better than 20/70, and nystagmus is likely.
One-year strabismus outcomes in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study.
Intraocular lens placement does not prevent the early development of strabismus after congenital cataract surgery, however, strabistismus was less likely to develop in infants whoseCataract was removed at an earlier age.
Global challenges in the management of congenital cataract: proceedings of the 4th International Congenital Cataract Symposium held on March 7, 2014, New York, New York.
Childhood cataracts have become a leading cause of preventable childhood blindness in many areas of the world. Here we summarize regional focus group discussions from the 4th Annual International
Sensorimotor outcomes by age 5 years after monocular cataract surgery in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study (IATS).
Improved ocular alignment by age 5 years correlated strongly with improved visual acuity and stereopsis, and IOL placement does not reduce the development of strabismus after monocular congenital cataract surgery.
Strabismus surgery outcomes in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study (IATS) at age 5 years.
In this study cohort, cataract surgery performed in the first 6 weeks of life was associated with a reduced frequency of strabismus surgery and surgery outcomes in this population are guarded.
