We treated eight neonates who had total, monocular, congenital cataracts with surgery, occlusion, and contact lenses. Visual results in all eight patients were good. In five patients visual acuities improved to 6/9 (20/30) or better in the aphakic eye. In three patients visual acuities improved to 6/24 (20/80) or better. Problems with contact lenses probably accounted for the poorer results in two of these three patients. Binocularity was not demonstrated in any of our patients.
