We wished to study how the severity and duration of early onset visual deprivation affects eye alignment and ocular stability. Thirty-three patients (aged 1 week to 12.8 years) with infantile cataracts (16 bilateral, 17 unilateral) were examined for periods up to 61 months. Twenty-three patients were considered to have cataracts, which were a major obstacle to vision (major form deprivation), 9 of whom underwent surgery within 8 weeks of birth (mean and SD=5.2+/-2.3 weeks) and 10 after 8 weeks… CONTINUE READING
